The Olive and The Grape: Celebrating the Foods and Lifestyle of the Mediterranean
Looking for high quality olive oils, all natural seasonings and other Mediterranean cooking ingredients? Try The Olive and The Grape. With three locations, The Olive and The Grape is easily accessible from anywhere in Cleveland. They recently opened a new location in Tower City Center, near Positively Cleveland’s offices. The owner invited us in for a personal look around this very unique store that “celebrates the foods and lifestyle of the Mediterranean” by providing top-of-the-line products and educating customers on the Mediterranean diet and lifestyle.
Included in their offerings are more than 30 olive and grapeseed oils (seasoned and unseasoned), more than ten gourmet vinegars, 30 sea salts, approximately 100 all-natural seasonings and a variety of pasta. Products can be purchased separately or in sampler sets (this makes it easy to learn how to whip up some yummy stuff!). They’ll even customize.
The Olive and The Grape locations include a specialty food store in Mentor, a stand at the Westside Market on the near west side of Cleveland and, as noted earlier, a storefront in Tower City Center. Be sure to take advantage of suggestions and recipes provided by the owner of this lovely little shop.
