    The best olive oil is the one you prefer. Try a number of extra virgin oils, some are very peppery with a lot of bite, some taste greener than others. There is no one best oil but there is a range of flavors, which have appeal to different palates. I've tried all the brands available in the supermarket and a few premium brands, and I prefer the widely available Filippo Berio Extra Virgin. Not the best, surely, but my favorite.

      sounds about right to me.we keep dipping oil seasonings in the house now like the one in this ad.i've grown quite fond of it along with this amazing focaccia.
