From what I had picked up, organic olive oil products can be the biggest indicator of someone’s skill as far as cooking is concerned. The reason for this is because of the smoke point that the oil possesses. The oil is not allowed to reach a certain point without its healthful properties deteriorating. Authorities on the matter like Flavor Your Life cannot recommend using oil in this condition and they will tell you that there are better ways of using it with more care being had.
Let’s say that you’re successful in working around the smoke point; the amount of dishes that can be crafted can prove to be quite substantial. Keep in mind that my mother is a good cook and one of the things that she can make, which I love, is homemade bread. However, I didn’t expect that this oil would be used for one certain loaf. The bread was different in terms of taste, as it was much better than before, and the texture was more efficient as seemingly natural moisture content was found, too.
My family enjoys going out to eat sometimes and one of the areas we go to quite often is an Italian place. I took a moment to notice how my grandfather dressed his salad when it came. Instead of going for your standard dressing, like we all did, he decided to utilize the oil, which was a great move on his part. I didn’t understand it until later but with the oil’s high amount of monounsaturated fats, it’s clear that the body is going to take to them much better than other fat types.
I’m not going to lie; organic olive oil products can pose a great deal of challenge for novice cooks such as me. However, I would like to think that it’s because of this level of challenge that I was driven to become much more efficient when it came to preparing food. I knew that others could make use of it and that it only took time, which would be spent trying time and time again, learning all the while. It’s the kind of endeavor which is worth failing at sometimes before success arises.
