For millennia, fresh olive oil has been one of life's necessities-not just as food but also as medicine, a beauty aid, and a vital element of religious ritual. Today's researchers are continuing to confirm the remarkable, life-giving properties of true extra virgin olive oil. But what if this symbol of health and purity has become deeply corrupt? Extra Virginity is an explosive story of oil fraud - a story of globalization, deception, and crime in the food industry from ancient times to the present - but it's also an inspiring account of the artisanal producers, food activists, chemists and chefs who are defending the extraordinary oils that truly deserve the name "extra virgin."
More than ever, people are interested in learning how to incorporate the remarkable flavours of specialty extra virgin olive oils and balsamic vinegars into their everyday cooking. The new Olive Oil and Vinegar Lover’s cookbook series is an easy way to learn how to do that with minimal investment. With just four products, you can make every one of the 50 recipes in the book. The first in the series is Italy.
With just two of Della Terra's specialty infused olive oils―Blood Orange and Tuscan Herb―and two balsamic vinegars―Fig Dark Balsamic and Sicilian Lemon White Balsamic―you can produce all fifty of the classic Italian recipes.
This gorgeous full-colour book includes recipes for appetizers, soup and salad, pasta, mains, and sweets, and also offers five full menus for planning a pitch-perfect dinner party. You’ll find all your favourite classic rustic Italian dishes here, including bruschetta, panzanella salad, cioppino, polenta, fresh pasta, meatballs, biscotti, panna cotta, and many more―all accompanied by stunning photography.
