How should I cook with olive oil?
EVOO can be used up to its smoking point of 400° F, and some varietals can be cooked at even higher temperatures. EVOO is also good for sautéing (300° F) or for sauces and frying (340° F).
EVOO is excellent in marinades and vinaigrettes, and makes a wonderful finishing oil to drizzle over your dishes. It is a flavorful and nutritious alternative to cooking with butter or margarine.
