This Is TASTE 288: Skyler Mapes

How much do you know about olive oil? After this episode, a lot more. Skyler Mapes, cofounder of EXAU Olive Oil and coauthor of the new book The Olive Oil Enthusiast, joined us from her home in Calabria, Italy, to drop invaluable olive oil knowledge from harvest to bottle, plus Italy travel tips and more. It’s a fun episode, and we hope you’ll enjoy it.

Also on the show, Aliza and Matt go over three things they each are enjoying, including: The Neon Croissant, JJ Johnson’s great new book The Simple Art of Rice, the IG of note @haileecatalano, Dwight Garner’s The Upstairs Delicatessen, C Pam Zhang’s How Much of These Hills Is Gold, the TikTokers are coming!
