Olive oil in big cans

hughb | Feb 25, 2009 06:47 AM

I'm tired of supermarket olive oils. Looking to buy a big can of extra virgin olive oil for everyday cooking. I want something decent, but not break-the-bank expensive; I keep a jar of very good expensive EVOO on hand for those occasions when the pure olive oil taste is important.

I've been to Bari foods and to the Greek grocery store on Halsted in Greektown. They have the big cans that I want but the brands are bewildering, and I don't want to buy a huge quantity only to be disappointed.

Anyone have any advice on a good brand and a place to get a big can of it in Chicago? Greek? Italian? Spanish?
