I was wondering why people from the north cook with margarine instead of olive oil? In Spain I use olive oil on a daily basis to cook and I feel so much better. With olive oil you can reduce your cholesterol and it helps to prevent some diseases. I think you are living a better life using olive oil. What's your opinion on this?

You are absolutely right, Barbara... Olive oil is much more healthy, tasty and delicious than butter.
I think that most countries in Europe cook with butter instead of olive oil, only Spain, Italy, Portugal and maybe Greece too cook with oil. I don't understand that, perhaps it is so because olive oil is very expensive out of Spain or Italy... or perhaps they are not used to it, anyway, they're losing out, ha ha.
