The Greek pure olive oil has a special, mature and aromatic flavor.

The health-enhancing properties of olive oil are now widely recognized, and Greek pure olive oil, produced in the country for over four thousand years, is finally attracting the attention it deserves. Greek extra virgin olive oil finds its perfect role on the table-for flavoring, preserving, moistening, and cooking- and there is no substitute for its rich, glossy beauty. The best (from Crete or the Peloponnese, or Kalamata extra virgin-olive oil) are distinguised by a rich, heady flavor and a mildly fruity aroma. The gift of the goddess Athena, olive oil is irrevocably intertwined with the culture and psyche of every Greek, from peasant to politician. Nowhere is the heritage of olive oil more linked with mythology and daily life than in Greece. As Homer wrote, Olive oil is liquid gold". The Greeks consume, per capita, more olive oil than the people of any other nation—more than the Spanish, more even than the Italians—and it is the world's third-largest producer. Greece’s 143 million olive trees are champion high-grade extra virgin producers—making 20 percent of the total world production. In reality, much of Greece's wonderful oil is exported in bulk to other EU countries that cannot produce enough or that have lots of refined olive oils in need of an upgrade provided by blending with Greece's good oil. So, because much Greek olive oil is marketed as " Produce of Elsewhere," most of us have tasted it without knowing it. Look out for Greek oil and help it enjoy the fame and popularity it richly deserves. Greek olive oil and Greek honey were essentials to the health, economics and also some religious ceremonies in Greece and, in ancient times. Even today, babies are baptized using olive oil. Many savoury dishes are dressed with olive oil and often just a squeeze of fresh lemon, a sprinkle of rigani (oregano), some sea salt, and pepper—that's all. Salads, soups, and even cakes and pastries are deliciously full of it, Greeks use it for deep-frying and that is the reason why even French fries taste especially good in Greece. Buy young oils with a fruity, recognizable taste and a good balance of flavors.
