  • Experiment with different oils for different occasions.
  • Use delicate oils for salad dressings or as a condiment over mild foods, like vegetables, fish, eggs or potatoes.
  • Pair robust oils with hearty foods that can stand up to the intense flavor, like steak or spicy soup.
  • With a high smoking point of 400°F extra virgin olive oil is suitable for cooking and can enhance any dish by drizzling on as a finisher.
  • Store oil in a dark cool pantry away from heat and light, which causes decay.
  • 57°F is the best temperature for storing and beware not to store your oil next to the stove.
  • Make sure the cap is screwed on tight after each use to protect it from air.
  • To ensure freshness, consume oil within 6 months from opening.
