I'm desperately looking for the olive oil "emma". If anyone knows where I can find it, please let me know. I've been to Fouvrac, Douceurs du Marche and tons of other places without any luck.

    Do you mean Casa Emma olive oil from Chianti? If so, contact the importer, Les Sélections François Fréchette (514 868-2020), and ask who carries it.

          You could try emailing the company and ask who carries it in Montreal...

          http://www.casaemma.com/olio_en.php

          casaemma@casaemma.com

          They also sell it online (if you know someone in one of the countries they ship to who can help you out!)

            Sorry. Would suggest you follow kpzoo's advice. Have you bought the olive oil in Montreal before?

              They serve it at Pintxo but when I asked, nobody knew where to get it. I'll try your suggestion but I might end up to the restaurant and see if I can buy a bottle from them. It's the most delicious oil I've ever tasted...

                have you tried Olive & Olives? they carry many olive oils and have three locations: Laurier East ( near Papineau), Jean Talon market, & south shore. If you don't find the one you are looking for, they can probably turn you on to something equally good.

          Milano's sells a big variety of olive oils, so you might try looking there.

            They have it at Cavallaro in Westmount. I saw loads of it near the cash - they must have just received a shipment. It sells for 12.99 a bottle.

              I just saw Emma olive oil in large tins at an Italian grocery store in Little Italy. I think the store was called Milano; it was on St. Laurent near Dante.

                Hello!
                If you were in Edmonton, I could have suggested you a place they have it. But looks like you are in Quebec, right?
                I just went to a store and bought an EMMA olive oil, and was looking for it on the internet to see if the store is cheap or not!!! Then I found this forum.
                I hope you can find it soon.
