May 28, 2009 | Food & Recipes, Olive Oil |

"Waiter, please take it away!"

When a bad wine is served, you reject it, right?

If it's corked, oxidized, or has some other overpowering fault, you tell the waiter to take it away. Then, how is extra virgin olive oil different really? It's a luxury product like wine. It's highly prized and can affect your whole dining experience.

The question is. . . would you tell the waiter to take it away? Would you tell the chef that his oil is rancid or adulterated and shouldn't be served? I say yes! It's time to start making restaurants and olive oil producers realize that their old or manipulated olive oil is unfit for public consumption.

Harry's Bar look a like Last night, I went out to dine in Mendoza. I found this beautiful Italian restaurant that looked to be from the 30's.

If you've ever been to a Harry's Bar, then you can envision what I mean. Older men in white suits, standing to the side, ready and waiting for the slightest nod or glance from a patron. Overall, they provided impeccable service in an old-fashioned atmosphere. However, this was no Harry's Bar.

Typical Rabas I ordered two dishes off the menu. The first, rabas, which was lightly battered and fried calamari served with slices of lemon. . . delicious! The second was gnocchi al pesto.

I had also been eating some bread and dipping it in some extra virgin olive oil off the table. The olive oil was great. . . herbaceous and still young.

Then, the gnocchi came out, with the pesto on the side. Wow! This looked amazing! As soon as he put the pesto on the table, I could already see. . . or smell . . . the problem. I glanced at the pesto in a worried and horrific manner. "No, it's not possible!" The oil on the table was so good. I dipped a spoon in and skimmed a layer of clean oil off.  Immediately upon tasting, I cringed. This olive oil was most certainly rancid.

Typical gnocchi with pesto sauce One glance at the waiter and he appeared immediately, as if he teleported over. I told him the oil was "rancio". I asked him if the pesto oil was the same oil as in the bottle. He replied yes and kept saying there shouldn't be a problem. "It's the same oil!", he declared.

He assured me three more times, without batting an eye. The look on my face remained more or less the same, so he proposed I order something else.

Turning wine away is easy because another bottle can be brought back and opened in front of you. Fearing that the cook might adulterate my food in another way, I bit the bullet and drowned my gnocchi in the good oil on the table. At least it tasted better. . . somewhat.

Three posibilities came to me on how this rancid oil came to be. . .

1. It was the good oil on the table, but was heated over time in the kitchen. . . probably next to the stove.
2. It was the good oil on the table, but old. . . about a year or two.
3. It was a different olive oil.

I'll never really know what the chef was thinking. Did he know, did he care, or does he just not know when oil is rancid? This will always be a mystery.

The next question is. . . what's an adulterated oil? This will be answered in a future blog posting.

The video is only 23 seconds long, but it shows eight different Knick fans that reportedly beat up a gay couple. The couple enjoys intimate relationships with other people outside the relationship which helps to create stronger bonds with such friends. In an effort to get a handle on this, let's try to place Stiller in an existing Lynch movie.

Herpes Simplex is maybe on of those unwished kind of conditions that nobody want to get. However as much as we hate, this is a normal disease these days with every 2 in 9 human affected by this. Although, in most the situations, it doesn't look to have any significant problem in our life, sometimes it can lead to bad and life threatening problems like cancer and HIV. And when we come to find out that we have Herpes, that is the worst feeling one can have. This is mainly because of the social stigma regarding Herpes However even then it is something we don't to be suffering with and have in our body. But if you have Herpes Simplex, you don't require to keep suffering all your life. The pain can be social or physical However it is not untreatable. So, now I am going to open a news with you that will excite you if not shock you. There has been a treatment found for Genital Herpes after long years of continuous research by a join team of doctors from America, France and some South American nations. The cure has not come out entirely out in the open because of major opposition from medicines corps who don't want to end up losing the dollars they were making by making so called Herpes suppression medications. However some folks have got access to it and I am of those. So find the link mentioned here and get rid of the damn Herpes Simplex.

Am Melissa Moore. I cannot believe this. I cannot believe that a man like DR Agumagu is still in this earth. My beloved brothers and sister fathers and mothers you all need to hear this. I was infected with gentian herpes for more than 3years now. And right now one faithful day my spirit drag me to open the internet and I search and see this man and seeing this man I no is the Gods doing so I decide to talk with him about my problems and he told me he can help me at. At first I was doubting him because for 3years I have been in this situation and now you came from no where and said you will help me. Then I said let me give him a try he ask me to get some items for the process which I did and later he send me something which I take and use it. And told me to go and sleep and once I am wake the next morning I should go for checkup. Which really I did and it was negative. Please if you no you are in any kind of problem try and reach him true email: or and receive your own's Gravatar

Make sure you're not put on a list to receive renewals of an item automatically when you don't want to get on that type of list. Generally these things take time but through online purchasing you can devote your time on all such things.

Urgent medical intervention is essential in such a scenario. If your pet is on long-tem prescription medications, it may well be worth researching the prices at pet pharmacies and comparing them to the prices at your veterinary office. Pharmacists, who must earn a qualifying degree, prepare and dispense prescribed medications.

3000 staff members work 24 hour a day to make this internet pharmacy a trusted online pharmacy among its customers. Online pharmacy is a legitimate platform to buy prescription and non prescription drugs without even visiting the doctor. Do they have reliable 24-hour customer service and a toll free line.
