La Tourangelle Roasted Walnut Oil

La Tourangelle Roasted Walnut OilPrepare to be dazzled and amazed.

La Tourangelle Roasted Walnut Oil is divine. It’s delicious in salads—mixing well with balsamic to create an amazingly flavorful vinaigrette. We love it drizzled on grilled fish or meat, or added towards the end of beef bourguignon. Try it in pasta and grains instead of butter. It makes a great mayonnaise or marinade for roasted or grilled veggies. And please, don’t hesitate to use it in cakes and baked goods, particularly anything with apples or pears.

La Tourangelle produces oil using traditional French methods in Woodland (near Sacramento), from mostly California-grown nuts. The oil is lightly filtered, and bursting with health benefits.

We keep ours refrigerated to preserve that wonderful taste and aroma, and shake before using to distribute the sediment and flavor.
