Chef Gigi’s Food Talk Radio

KSCU 103.3 FM Season 1 -Episode 1 Agro Mafia

August 24, 2019

Mafia copies of fine olive oil, wine and cheese have fueled an explosion of food crime in Italy. It's estimated to be a $16 billion-a-year enterprise. The Italians call it "Agromafia"...and it's a scandal for a people whose cuisine is considered a national treasure. Can you tell at first sip whether extra virgin has been diluted with cheap sunflower oil or canola?

Listen in as I explain the growing slipperly slope of olive oil.
