Olive oil, get ready to learn about this product. Cooking with olive oil is a huge part of our household. Growing up with Italian grandparents, the flow of olive oil has always run well in our home.
European Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Extra virgin olive oil is made by pressing without heat or chemicals. It represents the freshest and purest olive oil available that is virtually free of acidity. If the oil doesn’t have the signature fruity taste and harmonious balance, it won’t receive an Extra Virgin rating.
You can do everything from a light sauté to a deep fry and even bake. I love to bake with European Extra Virgin Olive Oil as well. We re-created this Olive Oil, Poppy Seed and Lime Cookies in our home and the results were amazing. We used the EVOO brand Olitalia in our cookie bites and the flavor was amazing!
