Choosing the right olive oil

You may just think of olive oil as a basic cooking staple, but it can be so much more than that.

With so many choices when it comes to olive oil, how do you know what is best for you? There are some that are better than others, and also many different tastes too.

Award-winning Chef Matthew McCartney from Jamestown Fish stopped by the set Thursday with some samples.

He told us what to look out for in a good olive oil, and also that it doesn’t necessarily have to come from Italy.

“I think the best thing we can do today is just learn to taste,” McCarney said. “It’s exactly like tasting wine. You want to look for aromas, you want to look for clean aromas.”

Also, many olive oils that say “extra virgin” may not be what you think.
