Flavor Your Life with EVOO

From Michelangelo to Pavarotti and Armani to Vespa, Europe has a long tradition of nurturing and developing classics. Their Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO) is no exception. For generations they’ve tended and cared for their olive trees to ensure that only the very best oil reaches your table.

I received complimentary products to provide this review. All opinions are my own.

Flavor Your Life, supported by the European Union, Unaprol, and the Italian Ministry of Agriculture, is dedicated to providing the latest in extra virgin olive oil news. The Flavor Your Life campaign is the voice of Extra Virgin Olive Oil production quality control, and aims to educate consumer so they can make informed decisions when purchasing Extra Virgin Olive Oil. Their goal is to share the history, cooking techniques, and health benefits of this European classic with you, as well as demonstrate the importance of choosing European when it comes to this kitchen staple.
 Why choose European?

- The olive tree has been revered in Europe since Antiquity. Over thousands of years farmers have evolved hundreds of varieties of olive trees (cultivars) and optimized them for different environment conditions and terrains to produce the most delicious yields.

- The result of this centuries old bond between the people and the land is the finest extra virgin olive in the world.

- The greatest impact on taste is the type of olive tree (cultivar), region (which affects climate and soil) and time of harvest. Europe offers a vast array of flavor profiles, so keep a variety of oils in your pantry for different occasions.

- Olives harvested early in the season, late August (varies by region), are under-ripe and produce oils that are greener, more bitter and pungent.

- Olives harvested at the end of the season, late November into December, are over-ripe and tend to taste mild and buttery.

- Spanish oil is typically golden yellow with a fruity, nutty flavor.

- Italian olive oil is often dark green and has an herbal aroma and a grassy flavor.

- Greek olive oil packs a strong flavor, aroma, and tends to be green.

- French oil is typically pale in color and has a mild flavor.

I love cooking with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. There are so many different recipes to create and re-create using the different varieties of EVOO. For more info about the Flavor Your Life Campaign, check them out on Facebook and Twitter.
