Did you know extra virgin olive oils can be as varied as wines? Chefs can explore different varieties of EVOO paired with different foods for great results. Then, advertise this special ingredient on the menu to create value and show attention to detail.

Don't fall prey to the common myths:

  • Myth: EVOO must be very green to be good quality
  • Truth: EVOO can range in color from golden to green
  • Myth: You can't cook with EVOO
  • Truth: EVOO is one of the most stable oils due to the monounsaturated fat (the good fat) and the antioxidants it contains. Flavors will diminish with extended heat though
