EXTRA VIRGINITY The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil

by | Read by Peter Ganim

Contemporary Culture • 10.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2011

The subtitle of this work,“The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil,” captures the delectable, and distasteful, essence of its topic. Mueller, the world's expert on olive oil production and olive oil fraud, delves into the shocking realities of deception, product globalization, lax regulatory practices, and illegal mixology and bottling that are associated with this product. Narrator Peter Ganim presents this work in a style reminiscent of fiction. His voice lavishes the descriptions of beautiful landscapes of olive groves and delicious olive-oil-infused cuisine with audible love. He gives studied accents to the global range of olive oil producers, farmers, professors, and wholesalers, according to their country of origin. Historical context is provided, which is peppered with references and lavish quotes that still inspire olive oil makers today. A.W. © AudioFile 2012, Portland, Maine [Published: APRIL 2012]
