Bellucci Premium responds to an article published by the Olive Oil Times that discusses what Spanish chef David Muñoz has to say about the promising future of olive oil.
In an article published by Olive Oil Times on January5th titled “Rising Star Sees Big Potential for Olive Oil,”famous Spanish chef David Muñoz discusses how olive oil is the ingredient with the “most promising future.” Muñoz is famous for his inventive Asian-Iberian fusion foods and says that by breaking established traditions, one can create innovative fusion meals. This is why Muñoz is so passionate about mixing olive oil, a staple Mediterranean food, with Asian flavors. He says, “Southeast Asian food and olive oil are completely compatible. For example, the flavors from Southeast Asia are pungent, sweet, spicy and bitter, and olive oil complements them well because it can also have these attributes.”
Muñoz believes that olive oil is the most versatile cooking oil. According to the article, “While he does use other vegetable oils depending on the dish being prepared [he says], ‘none has as many possibilities as olive oil.’”One reason why olive oil is versatile, says Muñoz, is the endless varieties available. “We use different types and grades of olive oil. We have Hojiblanca, Arbequina, Picual, Ocal, and various other varieties.”
Natalie Sexenian, the marketing manager for high-quality Tuscan olive oil producer Bellucci Premium, says, “Olive oil is not just for Mediterranean cuisine anymore.
Although it is a staple of the region and their diet, it can also be used by chefs to add richness and flavor to other types of cuisine.” She says, “As Muñoz mentioned, there are endless varieties of olive oil to choose from based on the type of cuisine and the desired taste. For example, extra virgin olive oil is bolder than light olive oil and can be used in meals to add flavor, whereas light olive oil is more commonly used in baking and can be used to add a more subtle flavor.”
Bellucci offers three different types of oil, including an organic option, with a mild peppery flavor and fruity undertones that will satisfy any palate. Bellucci Premium Toscano extra virgin olive oil uses olives that are grown on the beautiful landscapes of Tuscany, and maintained by 3rd and 4th generation farmers. The third type of oil Bellucci produces is the finest 100% Italian extra virgin olive oil, grown in many different regions of Italy.
