15. Is there any connection between the classification of olive oil and its culinary use?

Yes, the selection of olive oil should always be adjusted to each meal. An extra virgin olive oil, due to its quality and features, must be used to conclude a dish or to season raw foods so that it is possible to taste all the flavours and aromas. On the other hand, virgin olive oil is more appropriate for foods that take time to cook, while refined olive oil should only be used for frying.
