We love olive oil, especially when it come to dipping fresh bread. Finding the perfect olive oil can sometimes be a bit of a minefield. Do you pay extra or stick to cheaper versions, do you go for extra virgin or just plain olive oil? If you do not know your oils it can be a hard choice.
So when I was asked if I would like to share the olive oil guide below I thought that it would not only benefit me for future reference but any food loving person would also find it helpful.
Usually we go for extra virgin olive oil as we like that for mixing with balsamic vinegar. But after seeing this guide I will be ensuring that I have got a bottle of pure olive oil for cooking with and save the extra virgin for dipping and dressings.
If you have had a busy week and the last thing you want to do is cook you could always get the best if Italian food delivered from Jamie's Italian and knowing Jamie's restaurants they will only be using the best olive oil!
Olive oil has plenty of health benefits as well as tasting great. Olive oil is one of the oils which contains the good fats that our bodies need!
So how do you like your olive oil?
Do you prefer extra virgin, light or pure?
