Food & Wine (& Olive Oil)

The March 2008 Food & Wine magazine caught our attention with a great cover and “An American Chef’s Easy Italian Recipes”.  The story begins on page 28 with “How to Cook Like You Own an Italian Villa”, a quick gastronomic tour of Umbria with Matt Molina, of LA’s Osteria Mozza….associated with La Brea Bakery, Nancy Silverton, Mario Batali, et. al. There are nine recipes, and eight of them use Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Here are Olio2go’s Umbrian recommendations for the olive oil paired with each recipe:
