Usage Pairing Extra Virgin Olive Oils

Like with wine, specific varietals of olive oil pair best with certain types of dishes thus enhancing the flavor and overall experience of a meal. Star Usage Pairing Oils are a selection of three different single varietal extra virgin olive oils, each designating on the label which type of dish they pair with best.

 


EVO-VArbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Vegetables

Extra virgin olive oil obtained from the first pressing, made only with arbequina olives. It has a very smooth, slightly almond flavor, with touches of green apple and an aroma that is reminiscent of the fresh, green smell of olives in their prime of maturity.

STAR Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil enhances the natural fresh flavors in vegetables and salads without  being overpowering. This fruity oil adds a dimension of texture and smoothness to both fresh and cooked vegetables.


EVO-PFHojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Poultry/Fish

Extra virgin olive oil obtained from the first pressing, made only with hojiblanca olives.  This is a fruity oil, smooth, but persistent, with an aroma that lingers on the palate and in the memory.

The delicate flavors of white meat and fish are complemented with the medium intensity STAR Hojiblanca Extra Virgin Olive Oil.  Add a drizzle of Hojiblanca olive oil and light seasoning on your next fish or white meat dish to truly experience the harmony of flavor.


MONOVARIETALS PICUALPicual Extra Virgin Olive Oil for Beef/Lamb

Extra virgin olive oil obtained from the first pressing, made only with picual olives.  This is an audacious, intense oil with body, exquisitely bitter and with a marked personality.

STAR Picual Extra Virgin Olive Oil pairs with red meat (beef & lamb) exceptionally well.  The robust oil complements the heartiness of meat in the same way red wine complements red meat.
