Extra virgin?

There is an interesting piece in today's Guardian newspaper about the level of fraud in the olive oil business. See the whole article below.

The writer makes an interesting point about how to tell if an oil is evtra virgin - "But true extra virgin oil is peppery – it bites the back of the throat so fiercely it can make you cough. The flavours are vivid. "Peppery" is an official, positive attribute of "extra virgin" whereas smoothness will reliably indicate a low-quality oil."

This, and I do not lie, is how Casa Margherita olive oil tastes - it has a bite. So be sure of your supply and buy from Casa Margherita. No dodgyness here.
