Thumbs up STAR EV Olive Oil

I use STAR Extra Virgin Olive Oil. They use high quality extra virgin olive oils from Greece, Spain, Italy, and Tunisia.

I like Collivita, but really like Carapellie EVOO. Right now, for just plain EVOO, that's what I like.

I have been abbreviating Extra Virgin Olive Oil as EVOO on my recipe cards for many years. Its really good for health.

For every-day cooking I like a Greek olive oil. You have to understand, I live in a town of 3500; most of you live in areas where that is probably your local school's population. my second choice is Pompeii from Wal-Mart.

I've been using Berio's Extra-Virgin Olive Oil for nearly all my cooking for, God, about 12 years now. Buy it at CostCo by the gallon.

Not only has excellent fragrance & flavor for raw use, but also has a relatively decent smoking point for cooking. I adore it, & rarely cook with anything else. Always have 2 gallons on hand.

I love the olive oil from Queen Creek, AZ. We also have a local guy that has a family farm in Crete; he sells his olive oil here (Vlastos).

We have a local Italian importer here called Capri Flavors. The owner, and elderly lady named Titina runs the place with her children. She does cooking classes in their small retail store. She has some products branded with her name, that she selects herself on frequent trips to Italy. I have found these products to be excellent. She has her own brand of DOP San Marzano tomatoes, that I paid $2.50 a can for the last time I was in there, great price compared to the grocery stores. She also has an extra virgin olive oil that I absolutely love, very fruity and soft, and around $10-12 per liter, a great price.

It is very easy to get to from I-40 via aviation parkway. She has nice cheeses at great prices too. If you like cannoli, she sells the cream and shells that are very tasty.

Sciabica's

Have bought all of my olive oil from Sciabica's in Modesto, CA. Check out their website. Delicious and ranging from assertive to buttery. And they have flavored oils that use chilis, lemon, orange, basil, lavender, etc that are made using crushed herbs/etc right along with the crushed olives.
