Not all Olive Oil is Manufactured Equal
Cooking with a “good” olive oil is important because– olive oil stands up well to high heat (frying temperatures). However, do not cook (above its smoke point) as it can make food taste bad.

This is a good link to refer to about olive oil from the Olive Oil Source, the site is everything olive oil:

Buying Organically
Wherever you can, buy “Organic.” In most all the recipes I develop and post, I substitute non-organic ingredients for ORGANIC ingredients. When you shop at your local farmers market, if the produce is not marked Organic, ask them if it is organically-grown. It is okay to ask! It is your right to know what you put in your mouth or not.

What “Organically Grown” Means

Produce that is organically grown and processed uses no synthetic fertilizers or pesticides during the growing process.
