A great source of Vitamin E, almond oil has a fantastically rich, nutty flavor. A little goes a long way! Almond oil is great on green vegetables - try drizzling over blanched green beans topped with slivered almonds. Or toss steamed broccoli with almond oil and fleur de sel.
Jean Leblanc's family has been hand-crafting nut oils in Burgundy for 130 years. The oils are made so simply that it seems others would have emulated his quality. He grinds 54 pound batches of fresh nuts into a paste and roasts the paste - the oil that settles off has the most luxurious flavor and creamy texture.
Time Magazine named J. Leblanc to their Design 100 in 2009.
