In 1780, one of the greatest Italian success stories began in the Farchioni Family. The story that came from decades of work and study that brought them their finest Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Farchioni oils come from the highest quality of olives, picked from Italy and other countries, to bring you the freshest oil they can achieve. Their number one oil is the evoo II Casolare that is available in three versions: Grezzo Naturale, Grezzo Naturale Fruttato Intenco, and Biologico. Each one is cold pressed and made using a variety of olives to keep that natural green color and unique taste. The oil has a balanced flavor with a hint of fruity aroma making its wonderful flavor stand out. Whether the oil is drizzled over a salad, used as a condiment, or paired with hearty foods such as steak or soup, its delicate flavor will bring charm to any dish.
In choosing Olive Oil, there are a large variety of flavors to choose from. The difference in flavor is caused by which type of olive tree was used, what the climate and soil was like that the olive tree grew in, and the time range of when the olives were harvested. If olives are harvested early in season, such as late August, the olives will be under-ripe and produce oils that are more green in color, with a bitter and pungent taste. If the olives are harvested at the end of the season, such as late November and into December, the olives are over-ripe and will have a more mild and buttery taste.
You will want to choose the right olive oil for your dish,
these are some facts to help do so:
French Oil holds a mild flavor and is usually pale in color.
Greek Oil holds a strong flavor and is usually green in color.
Spanish Oil has a fruity, nutty flavor and is a golden yellow color.
Italian Oil has a grassy flavor with an herbal aroma. It is usually dark green in color.
Knowing this will help you choose the right oil to use for each dish.
One of my favorite ways to use Olive Oil is in sauteing veggies. I coat the bottom of a pan with oil and let it warm, as Evoo has a smoking point of 400 Degrees Fahrenheit, so it works great in cooking or enhancing any dish, which is why this works out so well. I then add in veggies, such as cabbage, carrots, onions, and garlic, and sprinkle in some seasonings such as black pepper and a little salt, stir it together and let it simmer with the lid on the pot. This makes such a great side dish.
It is healthy and delicious, the whole family can enjoy it!
