PREPARATION AND PAIRINGS
Extra virgin olive oil is an incredibly versatile ingredient, able to elevate most dishes. You can drizzle it over your salad, or add it as an ingredient in your salad dressing. A drizzle of it over your pasta or vegetables will give it a burst of flavor. A classic appetizer idea is pouring a little bit of extra virgin olive oil on a small dish, and adding a few splashes of balsamic vinegar. A very simple, but very tasty bread dip. You can even step up your mashed potato by whipping together boiled potatoes, some roasted garlic, Casa Rinaldi Extra Virgin Olive Oil, and some salt and pepper.
HIDING FROM LIGHT
Light exposure accelerates deterioration through photo-oxidation, especially in products high in chlorophyll, like extra virgin olive oil. This is why olive oil is usually packaged in dark green or dark brown bottles. The longer olive oil is exposed to heat and light, the faster it will lose its flavor.
Olive oil should be stored in a cool, dry, dark cupboard, away from the heat and light. Choose a spot in the kitchen that’s away from the oven. The best temperature for storing oil is from 13 to 21°C.
