Chef Tip: Pepper Infused Olive Oil

Red pepper flakes turns olive oil into olive VOILA!This is something we see a lot in Europe. A few pepper flakes sprinkled into a carafe of olive oil will impart the perfect little zing of flavor that’s not at all overpowering.

We keep two carafes on the counter, one with the pepper and one without. Usually when roasting most vegetables, we’ll grab the one with the pepper flakes. Bet you will too.
