Four different onions caramelized with balsamic vinegar, sugar and a special blend of spices complement an endless list of dishes. Serve with beef, chicken, fish, and shellfish and with grilled vegetables. Mix into sour cream for a fantastic dip. Enliven a plain chicken salad. Add to balsamic dressings and meatloaf mixtures.

The concept of The Gracious Gourmet is that if you have your pantry stocked properly, you can whip up a delicious meal with ease when you have last-minute guests over, it's a snow day or you just don't feel like leaving home, but want something good. These tapenades, spreads and pestos will do exactly that. I met Nancy Wekselbaum, owner of TGG, at the Summer Fancy Food Show in 2013. I had just opened the business and was on the hunt for some amazing products. They had the equivalent of a speed dating session, where makers pitched their products. Nancy was the last one of the day for me and we chatted long past the end of the event. She has played a key role in helping me pave my path for this business and her products have been instrumental to the early success of Riley/Land.
