Oh, man. Kottke delivers with this post on how to buy olive oil. It stars Tom Mueller who wrote an absorbing book about olive oil (birthday gift from mom).

I use a basic Fairway brand for cooking and then have a couple of nicer ones for more delicate things like salads. Frantoia does me right though I’m far from an expert.

Interesting story. You can tell a good restaurant by how long it takes them to bring the olive oil when you ask for it.
I wonder if Genco diluted their oil?

Providence has two relatively new olive oil stores. I mean, they do sell some other things, but their raison d'etre is olive oil. They have small barrels with taps, and you can taste and then choose, and they'll fill up a bottle for you and seal it. I like the experience as much as the oil.
