It's a couple years now that I have been ordering olive oil from my native California. I place an order once per year, so I don't focus on the price each time I open a new bottle. I went to California oils to get reliable, competitive pricing and pay now about $17 per 500 ml bottle. I have just calculated what my vinaigrette costs. One tablespoon costs about 50 cents and a carafe (14 fluid ounces I think) costs $13.50!!! That is a lot more than the good brands off the shelf. Just wondering what your reaction is to my extravagance?

(Oh, and $10 off your order of $50 or more in the Food52 Shop, too.)
