Gourmet Living is the brand name of exceptional food products sourced by Sheila and Richard May. As experienced travelers and gourmands, we are committed to bringing to the attention of the American consumer food products of exceptional quality under our own private label: Gourmet Living.
Sheila is an experienced nutritionist and has studied with Marcella Hazan in Italy. Having lived for extended periods of time in Italy, Greece, Spain, Argentina, Brazil, and the United Kingdom, both Richard and Sheila realize the importance of fine dining and “real” food products in a civilized society.
For this reason, our family business will introduce a limited number of products each year that enhance the flavor profile of fine foods. In 2015 Gourmet Living launched a superb balsamic vinegar from Modena Italy certified by the Italian Consortium.
In addition to sourcing these exceptional products, our company will provide a comprehensive reference resource on each of these products and some great recipe suggestions.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Following up on its initial successes, we added an extra virgin olive oil from California (December 2015). We expect to have our California olive oil certified organic for the 2018 vintage (early spring 2019).
Gourmet Living recently added a wooden olive boat and a rustic wood bread basket handcrafted from Tunisian olive wood. We think they make great gifts, particularly when accompanied by our California extra virgin olive oil.
People living in Mediterranean countries tend to live longer. Research suggests that they have healthier eating habits and eat far more vegetables and fruit.
In fact, eating more natural food products – particularly, seasonal farm products – is the basis of a healthy lifestyle. Our products are all natural and promote a diet rich in fresh food products.
