In her guide for "How To Buy Olive Oil," chef Giada De Laurentiis shares her favorite olive oil brands. Lucini Italia extra virgin olive oil (EVOO) is her number one pick.
Giada's preferred oil comes in two varieties: Lucini Everyday Argentinian and Lucini Organic Everyday. The Argentine variety is made from olives grown in the Andes.
Lucini Italia's products are produced using modern methods that adhere to tried and true traditions. Its foods are made in small batches using only natural ingredients.
In 2015, Lucini Italia became one of the brands owned by California Olive Ranch. Giada includes California Olive Ranch as her second-best choice for regular-use oil.
