Listed on page 141 of the new just-out-this-week Molto Gusto, Easy Italian Cooking are Mario Batali’s favorite extra virgin olive oils. At Olio2go, we carry seven of his favorites!
From the Italian Riviera/Liguria, described as delicate and light, with a grassy fragrance and less viscosity than Tuscan oils: Rosmarino (Santa Chiara), and Vittorio Cassini Classico.
From Tuscany, described as more intensely green in color and flavor; powerful players in any dish: Tenuta di Capezzana, Frescobaldi Laudemio, Badia a Coltibuono, and Volpaia.
From Sicily, described as similar to Tuscan, but we find Sicilians to be more grassy: Gianfranco Becchina’s Olio Verde.
