The Quarterback of the Kitchen? It’s Not Always the Chef - The New York Times
By Tejal Rao

April 17, 2018

You’re most likely to notice it in the abstract, if you notice it at all. The work of a good expediter is in the pacing of your dinner. It’s in the steadiness of the room. It’s in the sense that everyone in the restaurant is moving to a single, unbreakable rhythm.

7 Myths (and Truths) About Olive Oil - WSJ
Updated May 15, 2015

The only olive oil worthy of consideration is extra-virgin. Anything else, whether labeled pure, light or just plain olive oil, has been heavily refined into a pallid, flavorless substance to which a little extra-virgin oil is added for color and flavor. It’s an industrial product, made to industrial standards. If that’s all your supermarket offers, opt for one of the other oils on the shelf.

Extra-virgin olive oil should simply be the oily juice of the olive, minus the water also contained within the fruit. It may have been filtered, but it has not been refined. Because it is not standardized, extra-virgin varies enormously in aroma and flavor from bottle to bottle, producer to producer. The taste depends on many factors, from the variety of the olives pressed to their state of maturity to the speed and care with which they’ve been processed.

The Best Olive Oils: For Those Who Want To Buy -
Nov. 20, 2013 | WSJ | By Will Lyons.

Extra-virgin oil is the king of oils and is made from the first pressing of the olives. It is defined by having a lowish acidity so is ideal for drizzling over salads. Olive-oil tasters say that because of its delicate flavor it is far better to "finish" a dish with a slight drizzle than cook with it. Cooking should be reserved for virgin, which is also made from the first press but is slightly higher in acidity. Stronger flavored oils, such as those found in central Italy are best for cooked meats or pasta; I found that more delicate oils produced in Greece and Spain naturally pair with salads and fruit.
