I Won the Oil Shop Giveaway at Italyville!

I've been meaning to post this for some time now (sorry Joe!). Back in February Joe over at Italyville.com had this giveaway contest for some really good olive oil from oliveoilshop.com and I won! It's very rare that I win things, so I was pretty thrilled (I'm easily pleased).
Joe's got a great blog. He's is a first-generation Italian-American, born and raised in Massachusetts and posts lots of great recipes, pictures and talks about life growing up Italian. Joe travels back to his parents native Calabria often and posts really beautiful pictures of his ancestral lands. Hop over and check his blog out, I promise you won't be disappointed!

Congratulations for winning the oil. Did you try it already? is it tasty? In Tuscany we have a lot of differently tasting olive oil, and I like to try when the new oil is just coming, it can be kind of spicy in some way!

Wow, lucky you! Enjoy the oil.

Thanks! I asked the Italian to have a look and pick one and he couldn't believe the prices, but it seems to be quality oil. I haven't actually ordered mine yet because I have plenty of olive oil now but I should probably do it soon.
