Greek Liquid Gold

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 writing and 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, tasters, 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. This 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 is well 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.)

The Association of Cretan Olive Municipalities (Σύνδεσμος Ελαιοκομικών Δήμων Κρήτης, ΣΕΔΗΚ) awarded the Greek Liquid Gold website a Silver Minoan Olive Tree Award and a Green Minoan Olive Tree award for its contribution to the promotion of the culture of the olive and the health value of Cretan olive oil. (Of course, Greek Liquid Gold also shares news and information about bottled and branded extra virgin olive oil from all over Greece, as well as agrotourism and food tourism destinations throughout the country, and continues to expand coverage in all regions.) has also been praised and publicized by Greek and American embassies and consulates and Greek olive oil sector leaders and professionals, and discussed and republished by international publications. For North American Olive Oil Association executive director Joseph R. Profaci, “Greek Liquid Gold is one of my few go-to sources for accurate news and information about olive oil.” Profaci was among the international olive oil experts who viewed the poster presented by at the 2nd International Yale Symposium on Olive Oil & Health in Delphi, Greece, in early December 2019.
