Description: In Southern Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa, the olive tree is a living emblem that announces "this is the Mediterranean." Olive oil is the foundation of many Mediterranean cuisines. 

Treasured for millennia as a cooking medium, olive oil has now been discovered to be the healthiest of oils and a fundamental part of some of the world's most beneficial diets. 

Olive Oil offers an overview of the producing countries of this golden elixir, from "extra-virgin," the designation given to the highest quality oils, to "pure," the lowest grade. Then, 30 simple but spirited recipes bring out olive oil's best. 

For appetizers, try Tuscan Bean Soup with Green Pesto. Entrees include Char-Grilled Tuna with Red Onion Salad and Gremolata, and Chicken Breasts with Pancetta and Rosemary Oil. Olive oil has a special affinity for vegetables, as in Mediterranean Ragout of Marinated Vegetables. Finally, Orange and Lemon Polenta Cake proves that olive oil can even enhance dessert. 

Beautifully illustrated in full color and seasoned with cooking tips, Olive Oil invites you to bring some Mediterranean sun into your kitchen.
