Probably Extra Virgin but suitable for everyday cooking i.e. not the gastro foodie chateau bottled stuff that costs the earth.

I have used Tesco EV mainly which seems fine but I wondered if there are any better.

As well as most of the major supermarkets we also have Turkish supermarkets close by, which are pretty cheap and have a variety of Greek and Turkish brands.

I use Sainsbury's blended olive oil for cooking because it's mostly flavourless and has a reasonably high flashpoint. EVOO for me is a salad dressing ingredient... the flavour can get quickly ruined if it's heated up.

Interesting point - thanks.

Chalice Olive oil is really nice, at least the last bottle we had was.

i love Napolina garlic infused oil, must be a garlic lover though! otherwise i find supermarkets own brands light olive oils or extra virgin oils are just as good as the leading well known brands for a fraction of the price.
