“Once someone tries a real extra virgin olive oil
— an adult or a child, anybody with taste buds —they’ll never go back to the fake kind.It’s distinctive, complex, the freshest thing you’ve ever eaten.”
~ Tom Mueller, author of Extra Virginity

For millennia, fresh olive oil has been one of life's necessities-not just as food but also as medicine, a beauty aid, and a vital element of religious ritual.

Extra Virginity is an explosive story of oil fraud - a story of globalization, deception, and crime in the food industry from ancient times to the present - but it's also an inspiring account of the artisanal producers, food activists, chemists and chefs who are defending the extraordinary oils that truly deserve the name "extra virgin."
