La Tourangelle Toasted Sesame Oil is pure, all-natural and handcrafted from high-quality sesame seeds harvested from South America or Africa. The seeds are toasted and then expeller (machine) pressed to extract the oil. This oil is carefully filtered several times and then bottled. Our mill slowly roasts the sesame seeds at a low temperature resulting in a deep amber colored, richly flavored oil with a subtle toasted taste. Sesame Oil has long been the universal cooking medium in Asia, imparting its characteristic flavor to the foods of its regions. In Chinese and Korean cuisine, it is added as a flavor highlight to cooked dishes. The Japanese often add about 10% toasted sesame oil to the oil used for tempura or deep-frying, creating a rich, background flavor. American cooks may want to use sesame oil to flavor an Asian stir-fry or noodle dish or as a marinade for meat or fish. Sesame oil, rice vinegar, fresh grated ginger, and mustard make a delicious dressing for any combination of salad greens. La Tourangelle is one of few remaining oil mills keeping alive the time-honored French heritage of roasting and pressing delicious oils. We are a family-owned company whose mastery of oil production is the fruit of passion, integrity, and pride.
