Leon Bistro Balsamic Vinaigrette: our own recipe and a top-seller. Use it on salads and to marinate meats and vegetables before grilling. 250 mL or 500 mL ($10 or $18).

Leon Bistro Extra-Virgin Olive Oil: Wonderfully unique and delicious taste. Our olive oil is unfiltered and cold-pressed from mid-harvest Manzanillo olives. It is made for us by an organic olive grower in the Chico area. 250 mL or 500 mL ($10 or $18).

Leon Bistro Basil Infused Oil: Our recommendation for searing, sautéing, and on salads. Open the cap and smell the fresh basil! We steep organic basil in a mix of locally-produced olive oil and canola oil to achieve a blend that’s excellent for cooking with a higher heat. (It won’t smoke or break down as fast as other oils.) 250 mL or 500mL. ($10 or $18).

Leon Bistro Demi-Glace: We prepare it weekly, starting by caramelizing meat and vegetables and then making a stock that is slowly simmered until it reduces to a thick, dark, pungent sauce. It is the base of all of our sauces for our meats. We don’t recommend buying demi in stores. Instead, come to one of our cooking classes and learn how to make it, or buy ours. We suggest freezing it in an ice cube tray and using it cube by cube as needed. 8 or 16 oz. ($16 or $25) (Perishable.)

Leon Bistro Thai Green Curry Aioli: A house-made sauce similar to mayonnaise, but with a spicy, garlicky taste that’s perfect as an hors d’ouevre dip, or for serving with shrimp, crab cakes, and other seafood. We serve it both ways in the restaurant. 8 or 16oz ($10 or $18) (Perishable)

Leon Bistro Dipping Oil: The oil served with bread at the restaurant. We use it on bruschetta and as a marinade when we want a more spicy, herby flavor. 250mL or 500mL. ($10 or $20)

Leon Bistro Bacon-Onion Marmalade: The special ingredient that makes our burgers better than any you have ever tasted. Great as a condiment with grilled meats or spread on sandwiches. Transports our Paleo-diet friends to Heaven. 8 or 16oz. ($16 or $25). (Can be kept in freezer. Perishable)

Leon Bistro Caesar Dressing: The pure thing. No embellishments or chemicals, just olive oil, lemon juice, eggs (pasteurized), salt, cayenne pepper, and parmesan cheese. 8 or 16oz. ($9 or $16) (Perishable)
