So, what is olio?

Olio is an essential ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine, and it is an Italian word for "oil." It refers to pure, unadulterated oil made from pressed olives. This oil is a staple in Italian cooking and adds depth, richness, and flavor to dishes. Olio is highly versatile and can be used for cooking, baking, dressing salads, and drizzling on top of soups, stews, and pasta. It is a source of healthy fats, antioxidants, and other beneficial compounds that can support heart health, brain function, and overall well-being. When choosing olio, look for high-quality, extra-virgin varieties that are cold-pressed and stored in dark, cool places to preserve their flavor and nutritional value.
