From the cover: “The healthy benefits of olive oil have been enjoyed for centuries throughout the whole of the Mediterranean but only now are they being appreciated worldwide. The growing popularity of olive oil represents a major culinary breakthrough and estate bottled oils are even being talked about with the same enthusiasm as great wines.

In this fascinating book, which serves both as a history and a practical compendium, stunningly illustrated by Madeleine David’s evocative drawings, Anne Dolamore retraces her own celebratory journey through the olive growing countries of Spain, Italy, France, Morocco and Greece, taking in histories, varieties, cultivation and production. On her travels she sampled many olive oil dishes and The Essential Olive Oil Companion incorporates a hundred of these specially selected traditional and regional recipes.

Learn all about first cold pressed, extra virgin olive oil as well as the delights of home preserved table olives, and discover for yourself the joys of this nectar of the gods in a book as sumptuous as its subject.”
