EX­TRA VIR­GIN

donna hay - Fresh + Light - - News -

Ex­tra vir­gin olive oil (EVOO) is the fresh juice that has been cold pressed from the olives (rather than ex­tracted us­ing chem­i­cals or heat). There’s a lot of choice out there, but we al­ways opt for pure Aus­tralian ex­tra vir­gin olive oil (check the la­bel to make sure it’s not a blend that might be low qual­ity). Then we know we’re get­ting all the good­ness with ev­ery driz­zle.

LIGHT FLAVOURED

As op­posed to ‘light olive oil’ (which has lit­tle nu­tri­tional value), ‘light f lavoured ex­tra vir­gin olive oil’ refers solely to its f lavour. The sub­tle oil al­lows other in­gre­di­ents to shine with­out be­ing over­pow­ered, which is why we love us­ing it in bak­ing.
