Olive oil is now a staple in the American diet. How often have you been in the store looking at bottles of olive oil and not knowing which one to buy? An authoritative and practical new book has just been published that provides most of the answers. Cooking Techniques and Recipes with Olive Oil by Mary Platis and Laura Bashar is the new resource.
Olive Oil is known for its dynamic and diverse flavor characteristics. But, surprisingly, most people don’t really know how to cook with olive oil and have no idea what to look for when buying it.
“Our goal in writing this book is to teach people new ways to cook with olive oil and master fundamental skills,” the authors observe. “The techniques in our book will sharpen skills in the kitchen and acquaint cooks at all levels with basic methods of cooking with olive oil.”
