Crescendo - New Oil, Vinegar and Seasoning shop on South Granville

This is a couple week old place on 3030 Granville.

It's a German franchise that's got vinegars in barrels and oil in containers out of the wall. Other side of the store has dried herbs and spices in jars on the wall. Good concept and it delivers.

They've got olive oil from Greece, France and Spain but what got me were the nut oils - pistachio is dynamite and there's even a cedar nut one.

The vinegars are something special too. There's calamansi, mango, quince, along with more usual suspects, balsamic vinegars.

Where I spent my money though, was on the low acidity vinegar. Four flavours, fig, raspberry, apple and my favourite, date. Paired it with avocado oil for a dressing Transported.

This one's worth a tumble.
