If you haven’t tried cooking with olive oil before, it can seem overwhelming! There are so many recipes, tips, types of oil, and suggestions out there. 

We want to make it easy for you to incorporate the incredible flavor and health benefits of olive oil into your everyday meals.

You Can Cook With Olive Oil

Extra virgin olive oil, the type we sell at The Olive Branch can be used in just about everything you cook. There is poor information out there that says you shouldn’t heat extra virgin olive oil because it has a low smoke point. That simply isn’t true!

Yes, extra virgin olive oil has a lower smoke point than other cooking oils, but it stays stable at high heat and retains most of the health benefits and nutrients.
