Merula Extra-Virgin Olive Oil
When I visited Spain recently, I found that the restaurant kitchens I visited used a simple all-purpose Spanish olive oil. We spent a few months searching for a Spanish oil that was not unreasonably priced and would be good for everyday cooking. Produced from a blend of Spanish olives, Merula extra-virgin olive oil tastes fruity, balanced and bright—and lacks the throat-gripping bitterness of lesser brands. Merula’s bold flavor and rounded mouthfeel is suitable for dressings, vinaigrettes, sauces and most sautéing. The convenient 500-milliliter can keeps light out and preserves freshness.
