Olive Oil
There are several kinds of olive oil. We usually use Extra Vergin Olive Oil for most of the recipes, especially the ones in the European section. You can feel the difference between Extra Vergin olive oil and a regular olive oil especially if you need it raw and not for cooking. Feel free to use the one you have at home.
