After reading this last article > Fake Olive Oils
I noticed that the Kirkland Organic got rated as one of the good ones.
Kirkland is the house brand at the Costco stores.
A 2 litre bottle for $14 is a good price for any decent olive oil

I'm a costco fan and a EVOO fan - but that one you have in your picture is not a real good quality oil. They have a different one in a slimmer glass (not plastic) bottle that is a Tuscan olive oil - that is the one that is highly rated.
love my evoo - and I absolutely love costco - great value wines in that store as well.

A friend I have in the restaurant business (who is Sicilian-American) says it is the Italian mafia doing it - by dilution - and that almost any olive oil labeled extra virgin that is made in the US is more authentic and actually extra virgin than almost any of that which comes from Italy. All of the big Italian brands are affected, as are a lot of the more boutique distilleries in Italy.
I am completely on board with buying American anyway, but especially if it is a superior, or more pure product.

Here, let me help you revoke my card even more - I watch cooking shows...a lot. Chopped. Beating Bobby Flay. Even Guy Fieties shows - and they all use evoo when they cook. I think that if you are going high temp on whatever you are saute'ing you might want to go with another oil - but I'll have to pay more attention when Rachel Ray's show is on tonight to be sure...
