    Default Throwing this out for the masses

    I typically get my olive oil at Costco or Henry if its the California Brand and on sale. But there are 3 or 4 Mediterranean markets in the area that have brands for very good prices but the problem is...

    A) I am no expert of Olive Oil or the off brands
    B) There is a ton of shenanigans with Olive Oil thats actually an Oil Blend
    C) Im not lebanese or persion therefore have little clout with Ahmed and Amir at the local market.

    Anyone help a brutha out?

    Dark bottle saves it and there is a shelf life so don't buy too much at once.

    Yeah, dark bottles and stored in a dark cool area. The Costco stuff is my usual and I have never had it go bad on me. But I use it for almost everything....dressings, baking, stuffing, sautee, etc etc. I actually love it with Balsamic Vinegar dipped in bread or drizzled over fresh veggies.

    I keep 2 bottles on hand. One is for everyday use. It's a lesser expensive (usually Costco) oil. The other I get from C&K Greek Market on Pico and Normandie. Alton Brown told me that if you're going to cook with it, use the cheap stuff. Save the expensive stuff for dipping and drizzling where you're not going to cook the flavor out of it.

    Generally speaking, I do what Alton Brown says.

    try some of this stuff with your bread dips, veggies, or marinate. It is very good.

    (not to get off topic on olive oil).

    Bistro Blends Gourmet Olive Oils, Gourmet Balsamic Vinegars, Fine Roasted Coffees

    I used to buy the balsamic vinegars' at the local farmers markets in the San Gabriel Valley when I still lived there, now I order them on line. The stuff is great. I haven't tried their olive oils, if someone does, I'd be curious to know if they are worth it.

    I like to bathe myself and olive oil and have the masses lick it off.
