Honestly, trying to choose a bottle of Olive Oil is almost as complicated as picking out wine. (Yay! Choices! Can't complain about that.) Seriously though, between the differences in pricing, packaging/amount, derivation, etc., etc., I start to get dizzy when I'm staring at a shelf in a decently stocked store. And since I've only lived in Mexico a couple of years, many of the brands are unfamiliar to me.
So. What's your favorite moderately-priced "every-day" Olive Oil? Mostly I use it for saute/fry and in recipes. I'm looking for something that is hopefully widely distributed and consistently available. The other day I almost reached for the WalMart store brand (Best Value?), but instead defaulted to the "La Española" because of the pretty metal tin.
Yeah, I'm lost. Then again, I fall for wine packaging, too.
