GREECE

If you were to live in Greece - or any olive-oil-drenched, Mediterranean country - you would know not to skimp on the olive oil. It's so tasty on its own, and it makes all sorts of food, good or bad, fresh or near-rotting, almost as tasty as - sometimes even more delicious than - the liquid itself. My stepmother taught me to use two olive oils: the good one for salads, and the normal one for cooking. When heat is in the picture, it doesn't make sense to use that extra virgin, cold-pressed, foil-wrapped-and-babied oil. You just need quantity. This bottle supplies quantity and has a sort of oil-spill sock in the same color as the lid. It's crude, like another type of oil, but it's a great friend next to the stove. As I could not decide on a color, I use the second one for watering the plants, and the third for cheap wine.

Looking to get this? The shop at Cooper-Hewitt might have it!
