olive oil wisdom (1)

Found a great sourolive-oil-book-coverce of olive oil info aimed at newbies to the game like me ….

Charles Quest-Ritson has written a book so simple that Joe took it to school as his reading book. Nice section on regions of the world where olives are grown – according to Charles Q-R, Spain is the largest producer of olive oil – with more than 300 million olive trees – 170 of which are ours’!

If you are interested – and who wouldn’t be – his book is simply called “Olive Oil” and is published by Dorling Kindersley.

So olive oil wisdom for the day …..

“Grassiness – This is both a taste and a smell. It is reminiscent of freshly cut grass and a characteristic of young oils made from semi-mature olives”

great for dipping bread (or your finger) into !
