From the book:

"Gourmet flavored oils and vinegars are beautiful and practical. They add wonderful flavor when used in home cooking, and the colors of the bottles and the herbal contents are gorgeous when displayed in a sunny kitchen window. They make the perfect gift - they are useful, beautiful, and handmade with love, from fresh and perhaps even homegrown ingredients. This is certainly far superior in every way to anything that can be store-bought."

"Most gourmet flavored oils and vinegars are prepared from ingredients that are commonly on hand in the kitchen, and readily available in grocery and bulk stores. This makes producing your own gourmet flavored oils and vinegars so easy and convenient, that you can indulge a creative urge whenever you feel one."

"A fun and satisfying way to expand on the home-made theme of gourmet flavored oils and vinegars is to grow your own ingredients in an herb garden. You can also have a special patch in your flower garden, for flowers that can be dried and used for decorating your bottles. In this way, you can prepare oils and vinegars that are uniquely your own, and you can be confident that the herbs and blossoms you use are fresh , organic, and chemical free. This will assure you of the most beautiful appearance, the freshest flavor, and the homemade touch that will make your gourmet oils and vinegars extra special".
