Olive oil and food are just like pasta and sauce, some combinations are better than others. Perfect pairings come from recognizing similarities or contrasts of flavor and intensity. The oil shouldn’t overpower the food, nor should the food overpower the oil, thus the dish becomes greater than the sum of its parts.
A little Extra-Virgin Olive Oil can fundamentally change the taste of a dish when paired with the right flavors. The OlioWheel simplifies olive oil and food pairing by suggesting which fruitiness intensity level; Delicate, Medium or Robust, to use with particular foods.
The backside of the OlioWheel lists valuable information, such as, the health benefits, frying with Extra-Virgin Olive Oil, a baking conversion chart and more.
