The olive oil that I've cooked with for years has been discontinued in its largest size, and I'd like your recs on a great cooking oil that isn't too pricey and is widely available (Costco, Trader Joe's, Cost Plus World Market would be good sources). I prefer a deeply-flavored oil (but without a bitter finish) for cooking, probably either Spanish or Italian. I'm willing to pay for a quality oil whose characteristics complement the cooked food, but I don't care to waste more money randomly picking bottles off of shelves and being unimpressed. I haven't tried the stores brands at any of the above-mentioned retailers. Any suggestions?
No need for recs for finishing oils -- I've got plenty of those.
