This roasted hazelnut oil is a pure oil extracted from the roasting of hazelnuts. Imported from France, this elegant oil is known for its slightly sweet, nutty flavor and aroma.
Hazelnut oil is excellent when used in dressings, marinades and cold sauces. Vinaigrettes made with hazelnut oil take on a distinctive nutty flavor; when used in recipes with mayonnaise, the wonderful flavor of hazelnut oil add a wonderful flavor. Other dishes in which you can use the hazelnut are pasta, rice and potato salads. It has a relatively low smoke-point, which means it burns easily and is not ideal for sauteing or frying.
