Description: Olive oil has always been a staple of the Mediterranean diet and cooking with olives and olive oil has become part of modern and traditional cuisine throughout the world. It is an intrinsic part of the way we eat. Olives and olive oil pair wonderfully with garlic, chiles, vegetables, pasta, fish, and lighter meats, all of which are increasingly featuring in today's diet; not only does olive oil offer taste, it gives us a healthier option to cooking with butter and other oils. 

Marlena Spieler shares with us a selection of truly mouthwatering recipes -- simply dressed bowls of olives, classic salads, marinades, flavorful vegetable dishes, and moist aromatic cakes. Advice is given on choosing an olive oil that is appropriate to the dish that you are preparing, as, like fine wine, oils vary in color, flavor, and aroma. 

Until recently olive groves were neglected in favor of the production of other oils, but now, thankfully, the world has come to appreciate what the ancient Greeks, Romans and Egyptians knew thousands of years ago -- that the olive is an exceptional fruit and its flavor and aroma can make a simple dish something truly outstanding.
