EXTRA VIRGINITY: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil

The 2011 nonfiction book by American author Tom Mueller describes the history of olive oil, including its religious, economic, and culinary uses, as well as the current state of the olive oil industry.

Extra Virginity asserts that the global olive oil industry is rife with corruption and fraud due to lax governmental regulations, but it also presents stories of individuals, including growers and government officials, who seek to curb such practices and promote genuine extra virgin olive oil. The book includes an appendix with advice to consumers and references retailers, like Gustare, that are sourcing EVOs responsibly.
