With the start of grilling season, we want to introduce you to Olive Lucy's new line of Grilling Seasonings and Rubs that are now available at the store and soon to be available online. To kick it off, here is a simple recipe for Barbacoa Steak on the grill. Pronounced ‚Äúbar-bah-COH-ah‚ÄĚ, Barbacoa is a popular spice blend used in Mexico. It commonly involves the slow cooking of various parts of cows, goats, lamb or pork over a smoldering fire. Barbacoa is also known as Mexican BBQ.
Artichokes...most of us have had them in dips, out of jar on salads or walked past them in the grocery store completely intimidated by the look of them. I know, because I'm all of the above. So this past month, I challenged myself to actually make an artichoke. I had one left over from an Olive Oil Tasting 101 class - because I wanted to demonstrate/compare the green flavor of one of our olive oils to the essence of the artichoke - and thought okay, now is my chance to overcome my reluctance to working with this item.
In March of 2019, Randy Garbin, community contributor for the Glenside Local, interviewed Olive Lucy Owner, Rishona Myers in her Jenkintown, PA location to learn more about our Ultra Premium Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Flavored Olive Oils and Balsamic Vinegars.

The end of the year¬†holidays¬†are over, but here in the Northeast and in many parts of the country,¬†winter is kicking into high gear. ¬†Many of us are trying to start off the new year on the right foot, by¬†eating healthy and leaving all those sweet delicious¬†treats behind. ¬†The challenge is real, no doubt.¬†Comfort foods are just that - comfort for¬†when the cold winds blow and whistle past your windows, reminding you of that steaming¬†cup of hot cocoa with pillowy marshmallows, waiting to be sipped and savored as you seek release from the¬†icy grip of old man winter.
We love October at Olive Lucy. ¬†It marks the begining of the Fall and holiday season. ¬†With the change in weather and the turning of the leaves from fresh¬†green to the bright and warm colors of burnt red, orange and yellow, we look forward to the crisp autumn air and all the seasonal cooking that is about to begin.
