The creamiest of the Leblanc nut oils, hazelnut oil has a very unique, delicate flavor that really excites green vegetables. If we're being honest, this is our favorite among Leblanc's nut oils. Skip the dairy in your mashed potatoes and use a good pour of hazelnut oil. Or try drizzling it over grilled bitter lettuces like radicchio for a wonderful summer salad.
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.
