La Tourangelle handcrafts this Roasted Hazelnut Oil in Woodland, California strictly following 150-year-old traditional methods. Slowly roasted to perfection, expeller-pressed and lightly filtered, this oil adds a rich hazelnut taste to salad dressing, pasta, grilled meat or fish, baked pastries, and is perfect to dip with bread.

Usage
Roasted hazelnut oil is a well-kept secret of many top chefs. Great in salads, hazelnut oil 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!

Temperature
Suitable for medium-high heat: Perfect for sautéing, baking, dipping, blending into a dressing/sauce, or drizzling on a finished dish. Smoke point 430ºF.

Health Benefits
While hazelnut oil is a delicious product for your culinary needs, it also has significant health benefits. In fact, the fatty acid composition of hazelnut oil corresponds exactly to that of olive oil, providing the same high oleic-acid content. This health benefit is sometimes known as the “Mediterranean miracle.”

Production process
The process of extracting the oil has not changed for centuries. First, the hazelnuts are ground and roasted in cast-iron kettles. The resulting warm paste is then pressed in a hydraulic press. Following mechanical extraction, the oil is lightly filtered and bottled. The leftover cake is sold as cattlefeed or for use in bakeries.
