The Olive Oil Buyers Guide

Many people I know love using olive oil for dipping bread, perhaps with a bit of balsamic vinegar to make it sweeter. Myself, I’m not so keen unless it’s a flavoured one; I am partial to a chilli one. I’ve been known to have some bread and oil samples at the supermarket – I can’t help myself with a freebie. 😉

If it came as part of a meal in a restaurant I would have it; but I wouldn’t normally buy it just for that purpose at home. I do always have some in my cupboard for cooking with from time to time. Although, I never really think about what type I’m buying; I usually just buy whatever is on offer!

I didn’t realise the varieties were so different and better used for different things. That was until I read the following infographic put together by Jamie’s Italian. The taste wheel is really interesting; I didn’t imagine there would be that many flavours in olive oil either.
