About Edee

The Host of Viva Gourmet


Since 1878, these incredible oils have been carefully crafted by J. LeBlanc. Today, the LeBlanc’s continues a family legacy, and the result is a presence on the finest chefs’ tables internationally. The family farm and huilarie are located in France’s Burgundy region in the small town of Iguerande (meaning “in the middle of nowhere”). The process is truly amazing and unchanged for over 130 years.
The olives are cold-pressed using over 20,000 pounds of mechanical pressure, and then the pumice is pressed for what remains. The oil then rests before bottling.

Viva Freshness

The Culmination of Quality & Selection


Viva Gourmet is the recipe for memorable meals. Our products are always shipped fresh and are of the highest quality. Your items are custom packed into reusable insulated containers to ensure a quality delivery from our site to yours. Designed with gift-giving in mind, we hope to delight your senses as soon as the box is opened.

Our Artisans

The best Quality & Freshness


Our partners are artisan producers who take great pride and care in their craft. Fresh meat arrives from our preferred farmers or ranchers who choose to raise heritage breed animals for their unique characteristics and amazing flavor. Many of these meats are healthier than supermarket meats which often sacrifice quality for faster meat production. These slow growing breeds taste better and even have healthier fat!

Vinegars and oils are hand produced worldwide by families who maintain centuries of tradition to carefully create our ingredient with incomparable results. Fresh mushrooms and truffles are seasonal and in limited supply. In fact, many chef favorites, like Morel mushrooms and white truffles, are only able to be cultivated in the wild. We offer the opportunity to enjoy these treasures when available. When out of season, our Italian artisans provide high-quality prepared truffle products. Unlike mass-produced substitutes found in local gourmet shops, our ingredients have high concentrations of real truffles, resulting in a dramatically different aroma and taste.
