Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil Book

  • Image 1
Price:
$19.00

The sacred history and profane presence of a substance long seen as the essence of health and civilization.

For a millennia, fresh olive oil has been one of life's necessities-not just as food but also as medicine, a beauty aid, and a vital element of religious ritual. Today's researchers are continuing to confirm the remarkable, life-giving properties of true extra virgin olive oil. But what if this symbol of health and purity has become deeply corrupt? Extra Virginity is an explosive story of oil fraud - a story of globalization, deception, and crime in the food industry from ancient times to the present - but it's also an inspiring account of the artisanal producers, food activists, chemists and chefs who are defending the extraordinary oils that truly deserve the name "extra virgin."
