Olive oil is a much more complex topic than I would have guessed. The mythology of how the Greeks got olive oil from Athena was quite interesting. Olive oil has been around for a very long time, therefore it has a deep history associated with it. The point of olive oil being a “sexy fat” and in favor of culinary experts was something I never would have thought about. Having the tasting helped back up some of the claims being made in this article. It helped kind of put two and two together to get the whole picture. I wonder though, will global warming reduce or completely kill off olive oil? And if this happens, what will be the repercussions?
