Olive Oil: Liquid Gold

Spain produces and distributes more olive oil than any other place in the world, including Italy. In this episode, Annie hooks up with a range of experts who demonstrate the versatility of olive oil. Annie travels to Jaen, Spain's olive capital in southern Spain, where she visits one of the most respected olive oil farms in the world run by the Vano family, who press their own oil on site and produce the Castillo de Canena brand; meets with Maria Carmen Velez, a self-taught cook and alioli expert (a Spanish garlic and olive oil mayonnaise-type sauce) at her restaurant in the small inland town of Petrer; and prepares olive oil chocolates with master chocolate artisan Paco Torreblanca, including chocolate oysters with pearl and chocolate caviar.
