The Buyers Guide to Olive Oil

I do love Olive Oil and use it almost daily one way or another; either for cooking, making a simple salad dressing or mixed with a little balsamic vinegar for dipping bread.

With so many different kinds of Olive oil available it can be confusing to choose the best match for what you are going to use it for.  For example, did you know that Extra Virgin Olive Oil isn't the best oil for cooking and as it's the most expensive olive oil it is actually a bit of a waste?

So if you're not sure which oil to choose check out this very useful infographic by Jamie's Italian and you'll see that different olive oil's are suited to different foods too; oh yes, there's a lot more to olive oil than you might have thought!
