Hazelnut Oil by La Tourangelle
Roasted hazelnut oil is a well-kept secret of many top chefs. It combines very well with vinegar to produce a light but flavorful vinaigrette. However, some say it goes even better with lemon juice. With pasta, potatoes and beans, hazelnut oil serves as a wonderful substitute for butter. Finally, hazelnut oil works great with fish, and you won't go wrong to give it a try with cheese or carpaccio. Once you "discover" hazelnut oil, you will return time and time again to rediscover this versatile treasure! This oil is best when drizzled on salads, baked into cakes, added on pasta, grilled meat, or fish. Hazelnut oil is often compared to olive oil because of its similar health benefits and is sometimes referred to as the "Mediterranean miracle."
