Freshest and best Olive Oils?

Wanda_Gorgonzola | Sep 22, 2010 08:09 AM

I'm almost out of a the couple of different olive oils that I keep on hand. Any suggestions for good quality oil. Any aficionados want to weigh in?

Buying online works... or any local (to me = NYC) outlets. I know we are months away from a new harvest, but I'd like the freshest available now. Who vintage dates their bottles? What's the best extra-virgin for sauteing? I've already spent an arm at this summer's farmers markets...would rather not spend the leg :) A good value would be great.....maybe some higher end option for salads/garnish....

I like to keep several different types....spicy, fruity, etc.....but as with wine, I'm into trying something new/different.

Thanks much!
