Extra virgin olive oil can be used to cook any dish at low temperatures (below 160˚C). Cooking above this temperature will cause extra virgin olive oil to start to smoke and loose its health properties.
Alfa One has two great extra varieties to choose from with different flavour profiles for every low temperature cooking occasion.
Use Alfa One Leccino in mild flavoured dishes. Alfa One Leccino is smooth and balanced and is ideal to use for dipping with bread, dressing salad greens, finishing pasta, sautéing and slow roasting.
For more punchy flavour try Alfa One Frantoio. Full bodied and fruity it matches well with stronger full flavoured dishes. You might like to try it on a tomato and basil salad, dipping together with balsamic vinegar, meat dishes and vegetable dishes.
