Win A $100 Ah Love Oil Gift Basket!


Just in time for all the spring entertaining and cooking I know you are planning (right, right?), the kinds folks at Ah Love Oil and Vinegar in the Village at Shirlington are offering a gorgeous gift basket to a lucky Metrocurean reader.

The olive oil shop's "Fling into Spring Basket" (a $100 value) includes white peach balsamic vinegar, lemon olive oil, a ceramic dipping dish, dried Greek herbs, peach scented olive oil soap, a Citron candle and Chica Bom Bom Brazilian chocolates made with Ah Love Oil & Balsamic. 

Three more readers will receive a $20 gift certificate to the shop, where you can sample some 40 extra virgin oils and vinegars.

To enter: Leave a comment on this post by Thursday, April 12 at 10 a.m. I'll choose one grand prize winner, who will receive the goodie-filled basket, and three more, who each score a gift certificate — all announced in the comments Thursday afternoon.

May the odds be ever in your favor.
