Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

BTW afew, I still like olive oil a lot, but having tasted the good stuff in Provence, I found it quite expensive to get the same quality and taste in Finland. It makes sense to use a 'local' product like rape oil.

I quite agree, and it's what we do here too - local rapeseed and sunflower, €4 and €3 per litre respectively through our locavore co-op. Organic cold-pressed olive oil is darn expensive even here (not an olive region). A litre or two for summer salads is as far as we go.
