Bringing wine and EVOO from Italy...

in checked luggage I pressume since now we have this liquid restrictions for carry on luggage?

I just realized this a couple of days ago, and I am crushed! I bought the best OO from a vendor in Campo Fiori and was planning on getting a couple more bottles this time.

So I guess you watch Rachel Ray?

Yes, you have to bring it in your checked luggage. Bring bubble wrap and the big 2-1/2 gallon zip-loc bags. Wrap it in the bubble wrap, then in the zip-loc bag, roll some clothes around it, and it should be fine. I've never had anything break with this method. Of course, you can't bring back cases with this method!

One more thing, can you tell me which vendor sold you the olive oil?

Yup, what SusanP said.

Also keep in mind that you can buy some spectacular EVOOs and Italian wines right here in the USA. There are websites and specialty stores all over that stock great stuff.

Actually, I really dislike Rachel Ray, I was just too lazy to type! Thanks for the bubble wrap reminder, will definitely do that.

Regarding the olive oil available domestically... yes, I agree there are good ones, but nothing compares to the one vendor in Campo Fiori.

I am a chef, and even everything I sampled at the Fancy Food Show this spring, and have purchased through igourmet or at the recommendation of David Rosengarten, comes second place.

This vendor was in a corner, and sold mostly meats and cheese. Him and his wife run the post at the market, older, lovely couple I might add.

So can you tell us the name of the oil? Is it from Umbria?
