Extra virgin olive oil
Olive oil can be used in an enormous amount of ways. Raw to add the final touch to salads, fish, meats, risotto, pasta, vegetables. For cooking purposes to make the classical “soffritto” (finely chopped celery, onion and carrot slightly fried in evo olive oil) or to season roasts. For its particular smoke point it’s also used for deep frying fish and vegetables. It is also used as a natural preserver to keep vegetables and fish.
Olive oil is so deeply rooted in the Mediterranean culture that it has specific meanings and uses in Judaism, Christianity and Islamic rituals. The area of the Salento (in the South part of Puglia) exported olive oil to all the north European capitals to be used for lighting the cities; the owners of the Olive groves had the same sort of economic and political power that today is enjoyed by the extractors of mineral oil.
