Celebrity chef and nutritionist Ellie Krieger enlightens us on olive oil

Olive oil is one of the favorite ingredients for chefs and home cooks.  The varieties are as vast as are the recipe uses.  Chef and registered dietitian Ellie Krieger has a lot to say about olive oil and healthy eating.

The New York native was a fashion model and that helped her discover that food and healthy living were her passions.  She earned her BA in clinical nutrition from Cornell University and got her masters in nutrition from Columbia University.  She contributes to many publications and has a weekly column in The Washington Post.  She is actively involved in the “Let’s Move” campaign.

Krieger is also the host of the Food Network's Healthy Appetite and PBS's Ellie’s Real Good Food and has written five books including So Easy: Luscious Healthy Recipes for Every Meal of the Week.

Krieger spoke with TheCelebrityCafe.com about what the difference is between olive oil, light-tasting olive oil and extra virgin olive oil, how to properly store it, what The North American Olive Oil Association is, how olive oil can be used as a healthy substitute for butter and more, all while demonstrating a few recipes.
