Over two years of intensive research across four continents are behind this companion guide to the world's best olive oils and the regions that produce them. In the process, Charles Quest-Ritson has tasted around two thousand oils. His guidance tells you what to look for in an oil and where to find the many different styles that are available both at home and around the globe. Food and wine lovers will find this stylish book a stimulating guide to the riches and diversity of a much-consumed but poorly understood kitchen staple. Published in the US, UK and Australia by Dorling Kindersley (out April 2006).
