We know olive oil is one of the best fats around because of its health benefits, but, unless you live in an olive oil producing country like Spain, Italy, Cyprus, Portugal or France, olive oil can be very expensive, especially if you buy the really good stuff.
So it is important to understand which is the best oil for cooking, salads, bruschette and other foods so;
- You’re not wasting good oil in uses where you won’t get the full health benefits of it and therefore waste the good stuff
- Save money when buying it in the shops
- Use each type of oil to its full benefit
In this video I explain which are the main oils found in the market; a) Extra virgin, b) Olive oil, c) Light Olive Oil and d) Novello Extra Virgin. I go into detail about the difference between each one of them, which is the best oil to use for cooking and which to stay away from!
WHY LEARN ABOUT OLIVE OIL?
Olive oil is really expensive especially if you buy the really good stuff, understanding each type of oil in the market will give you the knowledge to decide when to splurge on the really good stuff and when to save some cash on the every day oil.
