At its most basic, Olive Oil is a fat that is found in olives. Native to the Mediterranean region, olives were harvested by Neolithic people more than 800 years before Christ was born. So it’s easy to say that the tradition of cooking with olive oil goes back, way back. At Gourmet Sardinia, we offer three different varieties of Italian Olive Oil. We have a cold pressed / extra virgin variety, our organic, and our traditional olive oil.
