In addition to enjoying Holive Oil with bread and drizzling it over salads, we do all of our cooking with our own olive oil as well any baking that calls for oil. We even deep fry with Holive Oil (truth!) When you cook with extra virgin olive oil food is both more delicious and better for you.
The benefits of cooking with extra virgin olive oil include:
