My husband and I were recently in Italy, where we had olive oil like we've never had in the US -- smooth and spicy, with a very distinct taste. We took cooking lessons while there, and learned that often they dress salads simply with this divine stuff.
The problem is, we haven't been able to find comparable oil on our return. We live in NYC and have ran the gauntlet trying olive oils at Fairway but to no avail.
Do any of you have a favorite brand of olive oil that is truly superb and distinct? Thanks in advance!
