Karawan Tunisian Extra Virgin Olive Oil and general thoughts on olive oil

frankiii | Jul 30, 2006 08:18 PM

I bought a bottle of this medium bodied olive oil last week and have enjoyed it with bread as well as in the preperation of a red lentil soup (provencal sytle, sort of anyway). I found it at a little middle easter food store (yeah, i know Tunisia is not really "middle easter") along with some cheeses i have never heard of. My cheese monger friend turned his nose up when i told him about them. Anyway, i used to buy a Syrian olive oil from a similar sort of shop in Greensboro, NC but dont remember the name. I have been pleased with this oil (much more than the rather tepid and grassy Bariani California Olive Oil i got a few weeks ago). Any thoughts on other Middle Eastern Olive Oils? I tend to prefer more robust oils and in this category the Spanish brand Ybarra is about as good as i have found. Thoughts
