UntitledI am going to go ahead and call this one right now –  avocado oil is going to be HUGE.  I said it now, so bookmark this in your head.

It seems every couple of years we have a “flavor of the year” that is so pervasive that it creeps into all restaurants…think..Chipotle (the pepper not the restaurant), Sriracha, and so on…

In the world of cooking, Olive Oil is pretty much everyone’s favorite oil to cook with or use for salads or bread dipping.  Thanks to people like Rachel Ray (EVOO!!) everyone defaults to it and as well they should.  It’s pretty damn awesome.

HOWEVER – this new kid on the block is turning heads and changing the way people think about food and cooking .

Now truth be told, I don’t much care for avocado.   I don’t have anything against it.  I find it’s nutty-flavor and creamy-texture to be enjoyable – but I don’t go for guac (OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!) and I don’t often want nutty-flavor and creamy-texture on my chicken sammiches.   That’s just me.   I just haven’t found something to use it for that makes it the key ingredient of that dish.

So when I got these three bottles of Avohaus (Extra Virgin, Garlic, and Lime) I was super-duper-reluctant-and-even-suspicious that I was headed toward some kind of goofy bandwagon.   I couldn’t imagine it being anything worthwhile.

But after reading up on it I was kinda intrigued.  Turns out that avocado oil has a higher smoke point that olive oil so you can cook with it at higher temperatures with it.   Hmmm.   Interesting.

After spending some time with this trio I can tell you I put them through some serious testing and they consistently rewarded me with fantastic flavor and there are now two bottles of gourmet olive oil that haven’t been touched in weeks.  I am loving this stuff!!

Did I just type that?  Wait…you are “meh” about actual avocado but LOVE avocado oil?


I have made dressings and marinades with each.   Cooked some UH-MAY-ZING fajitas with the lime-infused one, and the garlic one kicked-up grilled chicken like a boss!  There isn’t much I have tried or decided to use it for.  It’s that good.

Avohaus has really got a phenomenal product on their hands here with this product.  When I cook I am a bit spoiled to certain oils and seasonings that I have accumulated over the years and this is instantly a new favorite and go-to-move.

Love. Love.  Love this stuff.   I found it at Spec’s.   Totally worth trying and buying.

p.s.-  I have since also seen a chip company that markets their chips “made in avocado oil”…I am tellin’ ya…avocado oil is where it’s at!!!
