The "Grands Crus" of Olive Oil

When using olive oil, think of it like a great wine. When you choose a dish to serve with a Burgundy, for example, or a Bordeaux or an Italian or Chilean wine, you try to pair flavors and nuances to determine what will go together - the wine should flatter the food but not overpower the subtle balance of flavors. It is the same when choosing olive oil.
