Olive oils have personalities: They can be assertive, subtle, slightly bitter or surprisingly sweet.
For our money, the intensely fruity, buttery flavor of Zoe organic olive oil makes it an outstanding choice for most daily uses. Made from the first cold pressing of organic Spanish olives, this olive oil smells and tastes amazingly different from less carefully produced brands. Best of all, you can buy it in bulk and decant into your own glass containers, saving money and packaging waste. At about $50 for 88 ounces (and even less from some online sources), it’s much cheaper than most dull-tasting grocery store brands. Look for Zoe olive oils at Whole Foods Markets and Middle Eastern groceries. Find other Zoe products at www.zoebrand.com.
