You're not alone — olive oil is really, really expensive right now

If you bookmarked Carolina Gelen's recipe for Orange-Cardamom Olive Oil Cake to bake on a rainy day, do it now. Olive oil is about to get a lot more expensive.

Olive Oil's Many Uses Throughout History

Olive oil has long been used to enhance the pleasures of food. ThoughtCo says the signs of olive oil in cooking can be found as far back as the fifth century BCE.
