Extra virgin olive oil is the most flavorful olive oil, with an unlimited range of flavors spanning from smooth and subtle to peppery and pungent.
Uses: Drizzled straight out of the bottle to finish dishes, for dressings and marinades and for grilling. A finishing drizzle of extra virgin olive oil can enhance the texture, taste and aroma of food. To help select which extra virgin olive oil is best for a dish, consider complementary flavors. More intense tasting olive oils pair well with stronger ingredients, such as red meat and hearty grains; subtle, fruitier oils pair well with delicate foods, such as white fish and crisp vegetables.
