I don't Allow EVOO into the kitchen unless it's from
https://www.freshpressedoliveoil.com

This is one of the most faked and ripped off food groups in America
And none of the major brands come close to real.

EVOO isn't for cooking it's a finishing oil
Smoke point is too low to cook with and once you get good stuff you won't want to waste it.
I agree with this sentiment completely. The type of fat rarely contributes to the flavor more than the method of cooking. I've had excellent duck confit that was cooked in frying oil instead of duck fat. I think it's silly to use expensive oils for everything.

Because it's real quality olive oil
There's one semi decent brand available US wide
However compared to Fresh Pressed it's crap

It is, I am sure it is good but there are top quality oils available for a more reasonable price.

We picked up olive oil in Italy last year and it's much higher quality than what can be bought in the US. We can re-order from the owner at anytime - but it takes a few weeks to arrive.
