Use Olive Oil instead of Vegetable Oil

You can incorporate an extra virgin olive oil in baking recipes that call for vegetable or canola oil or butter and you will automatically make your recipes healthier because olive oil is lower in saturated fat. Additionally, mixing olive oil into your recipes enhances the item and offers the food a nuanced flavor that will leave your guests clamoring for your baking secrets.

Can I substitute Vegetable or Canola Oil for Olive Oil?

If your recipe calls for vegetable or canola oil, you should definitely substitute those oils with gourmet extra virgin olive oil. Any recipe that calls for vegetable oil as an ingredient is a perfect choice for olive oil. In these recipes, the swap would be a one-to-one ratio. In other words if the recipe calls for one cup of vegetable oil, you would simply use extra virgin olive oil. Imagine how the smooth, delicious flavor of gourmet olive oil will enhance the flavor of a chocolate or a carrot cake!

Incorporating gourmet olive oil in your baking recipes is best if you’re using high quality extra virgins such as those offered at Oliviers&Co. Using a low quality olive oil is akin to cooking with a wine that you wouldn’t want to drink. As chefs know, low-quality oils can bring with them an overpowering taste that can noticeably change the flavor of your baked goods.

Experiment with adding extra virgin olive oils to your recipes and gauge the reaction of your diners when they sample your baked goods with the delicious, nuanced flavor that only gourmet olive oil can bring.

Baking with Aromatic Olive Oils

Oliviers&Co has created unique Aromatic Olive Oils by specially fusing herbs, spices, & other flavoring agents with the freshly harvested olives during the crushing process.

Aromatic Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Your daily dose of antioxidants & a little bit of flavor

The higher the pressure used, & the faster it is released, the more quickly the infusion takes place & the more flavor is extracted.

Most Oliviers&Co producers use a traditional grinding method, the stone mill, to extract the oil from the olives. This is done within a 24 hour period in a cold press to reduce oxidation & retain the highest quality in content of the polyphenols, antioxidants, vitamins & most importantly flavor.
