Cooking with it isn't the same as eating it. To them it would be like draining the oil from your deep fryer and drinking it - barbaric.
That is not true. Olive oil was a staple of the Greek and Roman diets. You must be confusing olive oil with butter which was viewed as barbaric.Greeks and Romans would have considered it pretty barbaric to dip food in it. To them, olive oil was an industrial product and not food. What would you think about someone who ate soap and covered their food in lamp oil?
