Today on Your Call: What is the history of olive oil?


On today's Your Call, we’ll have a conversation with Tom Mueller, the author Extra Virginity: The Sublime and Scandalous World of Olive Oil. When did human beings start using olive oil?  How did it become an integral part of so many cuisines?  Join us at 10 or email feedback@yourcallradio.org?  Is olive oil an important part of the culture you come from?  Do you have a memory of cooking with olive oil you’d like to share? It’s Your Call, with Malihe Razazan and you.
