"This is one of my favorite olive oils. It's imported directly from Italy by Jim Dixon, a local Portland food critic and the founder of Real Good Food. He visited Italy for the first time 20 years ago with his wife, who is second generation Sicilian, and was shocked at how much better the olive oils were in Italy. He started importing small amounts directly from small family farms in Italy for himself and family and friends in the US, and now supply many of the top restaurants and chefs in Portland. This is one of my favorites among his imports, it’s vibrant and citrusy and is just a perfect all-around olive oil." - Jiying
