Re: What's a good olive oil?

Hi I also store my opened bottles of evoo in the Fridge.  You just have to remember to take it out about 1/2 hour before use.  My poor husband went to use it one day and thought it was no good because it had solidified, and he almost threw it out. A quick screech from me saved the olive oil from the trash can.  I explained to him that it keeps it from going ransid.

Re: What's a good olive oil?

I still use Capezzana, have done for well over a year now... It is a beautiful fresh tasting oil, that is made at the Bonacossi estate in the Tuscan countryside.

Capezzana has a fresh aroma of apples, leaves, and grass. It has a strong and peppery taste with a buttery finish, it isn't cheap (I pay£18 for a bottle)... but it is one of the best oils that I ever used. I highly recommend it...
