Although no expert, for years I've experimented with various brands in search of the elusive olive oil -- bright but light, aromatic but not cloying -- that would add distinction to a salad with just a drizzle of oil and a squeeze of lemon (salad dressing at its simplest and the true test for an olive oil). Capezzano is the first that did the trick for me, and I'm so happy to have found it. May it always be on the menu at Market Hall!
