Greek Liquid Gold: Authentic Extra Virgin Olive Oil provides information and news about Greek extra virgin olive oil, its quality, health benefits, producers, bottlers, and exporters, the places where it is made, and other facets of the Greek olive oil world.

Greek Liquid Gold was created by Dr. Lisa Radinovsky. She manages its writing, editing, photography, and correspondence, as well as providing advertising and English-language editing services to Greek olive oil companies that request them.

Radinovsky earned her BA in English at Princeton University and her PhD in English at Duke University in the USA, also taking classes in the sciences, design, and photography. Beginning to write about (and photograph) the Greek olive oil world for Olive Oil Times starting in March 2015, she was dismayed by the lack of up to date online English-language news on the subject. Determined to educate herself in order to provide that news, she learned a great deal from Greek olive oil producers, consumers, exporters, judges, and other olive oil industry members, as well as written sources in Greek and English.

A former English and composition professor accustomed to sharing her knowledge, Radinovsky set up the Greek Liquid Gold Facebook page in February 2016 to convey more of that information to a wider audience. An experienced writer, editor, and photographer who has also written for Greece Is, Lancaster Online, Seabourn Cruise Magazine, and various academic publications as well as editing the English on Exploring Greece, she is now prepared to provide readers with more olive oil news and information. (For a more personal account of how a former English professor from Pennsylvania started a new life in Crete dedicated to Greece’s liquid gold, see An American’s Love Affair with Greek Olive Oil on Greece Is.)

Greek Liquid Gold was developed by TWIN NET Information Systems Ltd in Athens, who will also provide ongoing technical support and hosting. TWIN NET is the creator of Exploring Greece, an ambitious online work in progress that provides vast amounts of detailed information and photos for tourists visiting selected parts of Greece.
