We saw this YouTube on how to taste olive oil, and it’s instructive and colorful:
The bit at the end, “don’t forget that the label has to say ‘product of Italy.’ If not, you might not know what you’re getting,” had especial resonance for us because we just finished reading the article in last week’s New Yorker about olive oil fraud. Basically, most “Italian olive oil” is either not Italian or not olive oil. Oh well! Have a good weekend anyway.
