Nuts about Oil
On a recent visit to Oil & Vinegar, a European chain that specialises in – well, can you guess – we were pleased to stumble across a bottle of hazelnut oil. Don’t get us wrong, we absolutely adore a good, high-quality olive oil, but if you’re in the mood to spice up your run-of-the-mill vinaigrette, this stuff fits the bill. The nutty liquid is a pleasant alternative to a standard oil when it comes to cooking a simple piece of fish, and it has the benefit of giving anything it touches a nutty flavour and aroma that other oils lack. So go ahead, get experimental and grab a bottle.
