Replacing Trader Joe's California Estate Olive Oil In My Life

Jim Leff | Jun 21, 201903:09 PM     69

I've been informed that Trader Joe's California Estate Olive Oil is discontinued, and that TJ's is searching for a new vendor. So the product will either disappear or change.

Anyone know an EVOO that's as versatile, high-quality, and nearly as cheap? I’m more willing to go a bit up in price rather than down in versatility and quality.

Versatility is particularly rare. This EVOO was delicate enough for finishing yet hardy (and inexpensive) enough for sauteeing. Its gentle flavor didn't command attention (so you didn't get sick of it), but you'd never call it insipid. It was a supporting player that could also sing lead.

Everyone has an olive oil or three that they prefer, and there've been dozens of threads aggregating tips. For focus, please reply here only if you feel, with exuberance, like you know just the thing to fit this particular bill. Again: versatility, high-quality, and low enough price that you can use it freely in all possible applications.
