Olive oil = Wisdom

In Judaism, pure olive oil symbolizes wisdom (Chochmah). 

Apart from that: I hardly ever cook any dish without olive oil. Every month, I am spending quite a sum on a bottle of "Katit" (pure olive oil). Olive oil belongs to the Middle East kitchen just like the Humus (chick peas), rice or a roasted chicken.
