In Europe, the DOP designation stands for Denomination of Protected Origin. Only certain food products with historical significance are given DOP status, which is controlled by government agencies. Once a DOP is created for a specific food, the various manufacturers must then complete a lengthy process to certify their production. For a product to get certified, it must be produced in a specific geographic region using accepted techniques. Only then can their label bear the DOP designation. DOP olive oil from Liguria must be made only from the taggiasche olive, an olive native to this part of Italy. A smaller olive with tremendous flavor, the taggiasche has hints of almond and a very fresh quality. An oil for those who crave the best the world has to offer, Olio Carli only makes very limited amounts of their DOP, with each bottle numbered serially. For their DOP oil, the olives are hand-selected and hand-pressed. Enjoy this superb extra virgin drizzled over steak, salads or especially fish.

The unique flavor and limited production of truffles command a price of up to $900 per pound, depending on the type. A superb way to capture their flavor and extend their use is to make truffle oil by soaking them in olive oil. Truffles grow underground and range in color from almost black to off-white. The white varieties have subtler flavors than the black truffles and lend extra virgin olive oil an almost garlicky flavor with full, earthy overtones. The white truffle is in season from September to December and is also used raw, thinly sliced over pasta, risotto, or omelettes. It has a very strong, pleasant aroma. Truffle oils are generally not used in cooking, as the heat adulterates their flavors. Instead, they are added after a dish is prepared or used in salads and other cold dishes.

This extra virgin olive oil opens up on the palate with citrus and sweetly floral, grassy notes. Bottling only the first cold pressing oil, Bouteillan's nose carries the faintest aromas of almonds and green herbs. All of Mas Des Bories olive oils are bottled according to traditional Provence farming methods with native trees, producing an oil that is robust and smooth without a bitter aftertaste. In the low Alps mountain range of France, encompassing a valley and the surrounding hillsides, Mas Des Bories is the perfect environment for the nurturing of olives. The rocky, but fertile soil, with the wild thyme, laurel, and lavender produces wonderful, fruity light golden oil, which is unique in the entire world. This year, Mas des Bories, Bouteillan, and AOC won gold Medals at Hamburg, Germany's International Olive Oil Competition. Mas Des Bories extra virgin olive oils have won Best in Show at the Los Angeles County Fair; in Avignon, France; as well as gold medals in Marseille, Paris, and Munich.
