You’ll always find a bottle of Extra Virgin Olive oil in my cupboard. This golden oil is extremely versatile and can be used in a variety of different ways. In fact the Romans used to bathe in it! I prefer the full-bodied flavoursome type, to eat that is, not to bathe in. But you can opt for lighter flavoured varieties if you like; note that the term ‘light’ in this instance refers to taste and not kilojoules.
