Choosing an olive oil can be similar to selecting a wine. The flavor of these oils vary considerably and a particular oil may be more suited for a particular dish, depending on whether you are pan-frying, sauteing, stir-frying, grilling or baking... or whether you are using the oil for marinades, dips, and dressings. If uncompromised by heat, the flavor of the olive oil is stronger.
