can i mix olive oil with butter?

yumyumyumyum | May 21, 2010 03:20 AM

hi. i like italian food very much. so i often check italian recipes.
although most of times chefs are ok with mixing olive oil with butter, i heard at least two times that the chef said we do not mix olive oil and butter in italy. so i am wondering why they say different things. i am guessing that there are some regions that they use only olive oil. if so, which regions? i would like to know because i like lighter taste.
well, i like food very much and i also respect its culture so i want to cook food as good as original ones.
thank you for your answers.
ps. if there are other common taboos such as meatball spaghetti, please let me know.
