Well, get a copy of Extra Virginity and find out from a man who delved deeply into the slick, slippery world of olive oil.
Mueller's investigative reporting on the olive oil industry started back in 2007 in The New Yorker's article Slippery Business: The Trade in Adulterated Olive Oil. He goes even deeper into the subject in Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil, his first book on the subject.
Mueller applauds the saints of the trade and blatantly points an accusing finger at the demons who lie, cheat and fake their way into making huge profits on phony oil. As you read, you will also learn how olive oil--especially Extra Virgin Olive Oil--is made and who it should be protected.
