Villa Milena Extra Virgin Olive OilPosted: December 27, 2009 | Author: admin | Filed under: Food Items, Grocery Outlet | 1 Comment »
I got a bottle of Villa MIlena Extra Virgin Olive Oil (I don’t remember how much I pay, I’d guess about $7-8 for a 1 lt bottle) at Grocery Outlet a couple of weeks ago because I had ran out of it and I didn’t have time to go to Trader Joe’s, where I usually buy my EVOO (I get the Greek Kalamata one in the large bottle, it’s quite good and cheap). I wasn’t expecting much, but I still managed to be disappointed. The oil is a green-yellow color and has a fruity beginning, no middle whatsoever and a *very* bitter finish. Indeed, it leaves a bitter taste in your mouth when you are done.
I’ve used it for sauteing/pan frying and it’s fine for that, but definitely not for salads or with bread.
