The Technique

Olive Oil

Olive oil offers good flavor & versatility when cooking & entertaining. It may be used to season dishes or sauté vegetables for soups, side dishes & entrees but it also may accompany homemade bread for dipping in place of butter. Extra virgin olive oil in particular has long been prized for drizzling over salads just before serving & offers a very pronounced flavor. With a smoking point that ranges between 325 degrees to 375 degrees, it’s not recommended for extreme, high heat cooking applications so choose olive oils that have been refined for those tasks. Learn how to use olive oil in a variety of ways.

How To Use & Purchase Olive Oil

The valuable oil is made by pressing whole olives & it has long been a staple in Mediterranean cooking. It makes a wonderful focal point when entertaining. Brush a refined variety over the surface of homemade Buttermilk Focaccia dough before baking then be certain to offer guests plenty of extra virgin olive oil for dipping the bread. Season it with a smattering of kosher salt & freshly ground pepper. When choosing it for purchase, navigating the terms on the label will help you choose the right bottle for the right application.

First cold pressed refers to olives that have only been crushed one time & the temperature of them during the process. It’s important to note that depending on where the olives may have been harvested from, the temperature can vary from region to region simply based on geography so the flavor will vary accordingly. When the term virgin is used on the label, it’s an indication that heat was not introduced into the process. Expect a stronger, more pronounced taste. The term olive oil is a blend of types while industry words such as light & classic are used to describe the taste of the oil so consumers have an expectation of their purchase.
