Olive oil has been the hallmark of the healthy Mediterranean Diet since very long. It adds vibrant flavors and textures to Mediterranean foods and is high in healthy, monounsaturated fats along with antioxidants. Our versatile Massimo Gusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil is perfect for cooking, frying, sautéing, poaching, dressing and baking. It is a heart-healthy fat, high in polyphenols, that lends a little extra something special to your favorite dishes.

Cooking with Olive Oil:


sautéing is an easy & healthy way to prepare your favorite dishes bringing out the flavor of vegetables and seafood. To sauté, pour Massimo Gusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil into a sauté pan and heat over low heat. When the oil is heated through, add the food item. Stir, toss, or turn until cooked.


Frying in Massimo Gusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil makes food less greasy, and crunchier, than frying in other fats. Also, these foods have less cholesterol and saturated fat than foods fried in most other fats. Here are some tips when frying with Massimo Gusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil:

  • Deep fry at 350 to 365 ºF, and heat the oil slowly.
  • Avoid putting too much food in the oil at once.
  • Place food on wire racks after cooking to drain excess fat


Baking with Massimo Gusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil adds a wonderful, nuanced flavor to baked goods. Moreover baking with this pure olive oil, instead of butter, cuts the amount of cholesterol and saturated fat in your favorite recipes.
