Appreciated since Antiquity, Olive Oil is regarded as an art just like wine. This book offers a tour of Europe of the most beautiful olive-growing estates. Italians, Spaniards, Greeks, French or Portuguese, their owners have skillfully combined modern techniques with a careful selection of the varieties. This explains the diversity of textures, colours and suave or fruity fragrances, with a round taste, fresh or long in the mouth, of great finesse or intense rusticity, sometimes enhanced with a note of citrus or green grass. Thirty recipes and thematic pages (varieties, techniques, production, appellations, tasting vocabulary, etc.) usefully complete the discovery of the estates themselves.
