Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Extra Virgin Olive Oil is a staple of the Mediterranean diet and is known to have numerous health benefits including the significant reduction of cardiovascular disease. Extra Virgin Olive oil is also an excellent source of vitamin E and a powerful antioxidant with the ability to dissolve bodily toxins. It is also a well kept secret that olive oil is an excellent aphrodisiac!

Light and delicate dishes like poached or sautéed fish, chicken or veal are enhanced with a milder, less fruity olive oil. Full flavoured robust dishes such as soups or tomato-based sauces welcome a fruitier, flavourful olive oil, as do steamed vegetables and salads or roasted, barbecued and braised dishes requiring high or prolonged heat. When deep frying, a crisp caramelized crust is formed that will allow but a small amount of oil to soak into the food. Olive oils herbal hues blend excellently with vegetables. Pies are best made with sweet olive oil.
