Favorite olive oil?
« on: August 06, 2014, 11:29:05 PM »
What olive oil does everyone like to use?  I usually just buy the great value at walmart which I find a bit fruity and peppery but would like to move on to some other brands.  I tried newmans organic recently and found it someone bland.

Thanks Pete.  Its overwhelming sifting thru the options at the grocery store but fun to try new brands.

I usually get California Olive Ranch. Good price, usa made, it's actually olive oil.

I try to only buy USA olive oils, it's one of the biggest food scams ever but a frighteningly high percentage of imported olive oil isn't even olive oil...

This has become my favorite oil.  It's not made from olives but for most things I prefer it by wide margin.

Interesting.
Does the avocado oil have a nice flavor in pizza?  Or is it no flavor and that's why you like it?

It has a light buttery flavor.  Some brands have a little bit of a grassy/mushroom flavor note.  It is often used as a direct replacement for butter in baking applications.  It also has a much higher smoke point than olive oil.

Just got a bottle of "Baccio Bio - Terra Di Capitani" from the Olive Oil Club that I am in. Umbrian. Exemplary on a Margharita. No such thing as one type though. Fun to experiment with many different types of Olive Oil.
