selecting the best dipping oil for bread

Combining our classic balsamic or mosto cotto with the right dipping oil for bread can be a delight to the taste buds.

Dipping bread in oil is a culinary experience that is a great starter to any meal. Whether you’re hosting a dinner party or simply enjoying a quiet evening at home, choosing the right dipping oil can make all the difference. Here’s what you need to know to find the perfect match for your crusty loaf:

  1. EVOO Flavour Profile Matters
    The first thing to consider when selecting a dipping oil is its flavour profile. Extra virgin olive oil is a classic choice, offering a range and depth of flavours to enhance each bite of your favourite artisan bread. Rather than choosing a flavour that is light, we recommend a robust yet balanced Australian extra virgin olive oil from our range; the Hojiblanca EVOO or Rushworth Gold EVOO.

    Select our classic balsamic vinegar to drizzle in the olive oil or for something a little sweeter, try our mosto cotto.
  2. Quality Ingredients Make a Difference
    Quality matters. Opt for extra virgin olive oil that is fresh, produced locally and award winning. That way you can be confident of superb flavours (see the judge’s tasting notes on our EVOO product pages). Further, choose an artisan style bread for a more rustic flavour.
  3. Pairing Perfection
    Pairing the right bread with your chosen extra virgin olive oil can create a more enjoyable dining experience. Crusty Italian ciabatta loves to soak up the earthiness of olive oil, while a French baguette complements herb-infused oils beautifully. Consider your bread’s texture and flavour when making your selection.
  4. Beyond Dipping
    Think beyond dipping—your chosen Australian olive oil can double as a versatile ingredient. Use it in salad dressings or drizzle it over roasted vegetables. Our premium olive oils are best used without cooking.
  5. Health Conscious Choices
    For health-conscious individuals, olive oil stands out for its heart-healthy monounsaturated fats. It’s also rich in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties.

Choosing the best dipping oil for bread is about food enjoyment and creating memorable dining experiences. Experiment with different olive oils, pairings, and recipes to find your perfect match.
