Review

'Eye-opening, a brilliantly researched expose of the industry' --Sunday Times

'This fascinating investigation shows there's no trade more slippery than olive oil' --Observer

'Mueller has a gift for balance, celebrating olive oil and inspiring the consumer to be more oil-aware' --The Times

'Admirable and enjoyable... The author's revelation of olive-oil crime is alarming' --Irish Times

`Mueller writes about olive oil with passion and style, and offers many surprises. Who would have thought that the world of olive oil could be so full of intrigue and crime?'
--Literary Review

Book Description

Extra Virginity is a rich, fluid and evocative account of the history and alchemy of olive oil, and of how the finest artisanal oil-manufacturers - in the deep south of Italy, around the Mediterranean, in California, Down Under and beyond - are endangered by the widespread fraud of one of mankind's oldest and most versatile products.
