Around the olive oil wheel

Jordan Bromberg

CHIUSDINO, Italy –Whether its baked in our Margherita pizza or drizzled over our fresh vegetables, olive oil has become part of our everyday diet here in Italy.

Until today I didn’t realize that olive oil could be tasted like wine. I only realized that it tasted better than any oil I have had in the U.S.

Today we sampled olive oils from three different regions of Italy and learned about the variety of textures, appearances, smells and tastes that different olive oils have.

Below is a guide to the words that can be used to describe olive oil based on these traits.
