Have you checked your oil lately?

Oils are delicate. Extra Virgin Olive Oils, Truffle Oils and Nut Oils are all adversely affected by heat, light, air, and time (i.e. old is bad). First you need to know your source. Many supermarkets treat oils like they do sugar, flour and other non-perishables. Cases of oils are transported in non-temperature controlled trucks, they sit on docks out in the sun, are stored in hot warehouses, and finally put on the shelves, subject to light and heat. They buy huge quantities at a time so the oils can sit around a long time before you purchase them. Here at Gourmet-Delights.com we directly source all our oils, in small lots [buying no more in one order than we can sell in 2-4 weeks time] and then store them in our wine cooler (55F) before we ship them to you. We know the difference between REALLY FRESH oils and oils that are not treated properly. One of our favorite local chefs said "I thought I was getting great oils at the co-op and Whole Foods but then I tried yours and realized that not only do you have the quality, but your storage and care makes a huge difference".

Once you get the oils home they should ideally be stored in a dark place at 55F. If you have a temperature controlled wine cellar, this is a perfect place. OR if you prefer to have them closer at hand while cooking, or do not have a wine cellar, storing them in the refrigerator will work just fine. However, note that extra virgin olive oils may solidify to an extent at refrigerator temperatures, so plan to pull them out of the refrigerator as part of your meal prep work so they have a chance to warm up and become fully liquid again.

ALWAYS smell and taste your oil before using it. If the oil has turned you will get a rancid, oxidized, off-putting experience. And that can ruin your meal. Remember that some oils are made to be spicy, peppery, grassy, and even bitter. This is not a sign of poor quality but rather these characteristics come from the particular olive being used. Just as Pinot Noir grapes are different the Cabernet Sauvignon grapes, and give you different flavors in wine, different olives produce different flavors in extra virgin olive oils.

As Julia Child reminds us time and again, fresh, high-quality ingredients make all the difference!

Pure Hazelnut Oil (J. Leblanc)
Pure Hazelnut Oil (J. Leblanc) Be the first one to write a review

J. Leblanc has changed little since 1878, the year it was founded. It is still run by a Leblanc, Jean-Charles, grandson of the founder. It is still located in the southern most village of Burgundy, Iguerande, and it still manufactures the highest quality, small-batch, handcrafted nut oils in France.... if not the world.

J. Leblanc starts with the careful selection of the absolute highest quality whole nuts available, grown on many of the same farms that J. Leblanc has been doing business with for generations. For each batch of oil about fifty-four pounds of nuts are ground into a paste using the huilerie's original granite mill. In order to guarantee an even roast, this paste is constantly stirred in a roaster for 10 minutes. The roasted paste is then transferred to a mechanical press where it is divided in half and separated with filter cloth. The oil is expressed at 22,000 pounds of mechanical pressure. After pressing, the oil rests from seven-to-fourteen days to allow the sediment to settle before bottling. This is a labor, and time, intensive process which produces only 300 liters a day. These nut oils are pure, unadulterated, unfiltered, and unrefined.

J. Leblanc nut oils are made to order.

One of the most important facts about Huilerie Leblanc's production is not the "how" but the "when". Since Huilerie Leblanc does not have large storage facilities, or refining capabilities, production takes place when orders come in - guaranteeing the freshest nut oils delivered to your door. It's not only a difference you can taste - in their clean, bright, and deep flavors, but also extends their longevity by up to a year.

In the United States, J. Leblanc is finding its way to renowned restaurants like The French Laundry, Mandalay Bay, Delfina, Campanelli, One Market, 231 Ellis, and Hawthorn Lane to name a few!

  • Nut oils can be used for salad dressings with quality vinegar such as champagne, Banyuls, sherry, or raspberry. The usual ratio is three parts oil to one part vinegar.

Please refrigerate J. Leblanc nut oils after opening.

Belazu Organic Argan Oil
Belazu Organic Argan Oil Be the first one to write a review

A unique oil with a mildly toasted, nutty flavor. It is known as "the golden oil."

The Argan tree is unique to the South Western corner of Morocco and is called the "tree of life" due to the importance of this tree, and its fruit and oil, to Moroccan traditions and culture. This remarkable organic Argan oil is made by cold pressing the seeds inside the nut of the Argan fruit. It takes 100 kilograms (220 pounds) of fruit to produce just 1 liter (33.8 fluid ounces) of oil, meaning it is an extremely labor intensive oil to produce.

Once the fruit ripens, it is harvested and laid out in the sun to dry. The flesh of the fruit is removed, and the hard shell of the nut is cracked to remove the almond shaped kernels inside. These are gently toasted and, once cooled, ground in a stone ‘rotary quern’, similar to a stone pestle and mortar. The resulting nut paste is then massaged by hand to extract the luscious oil.

Rich in Vitamin E and linoleic acids, and with a high unsaturated fatty acid content (over 80%), this unique organic Argan oil is full of health-giving properties. Vitamin E promotes healthy hair, skin, and nails, and the unsaturated fatty acids are great for keeping the heart healthy and lowering cholesterol levels. Initial tests indicate it may reverse the metabolic changes that occur from a high sugar diet, thus being a natural aid in the fight against diabetes; and the high levels of antioxidants show promise in fighting cancer. It is light in color with a reddish tinge and it is milder in flavor than sesame or walnut oil, yet its taste is distinctly nutty. Traditionally used for cooking tagines and dressing couscous, organic Argan oil also adds a unique and wonderful flavor to salads and other North African dishes.

A few serving ideas:

  • Mix organic Argan oil with honey and yogurt like the Berbers do for a nutritious breakfast.
  • Make amlou: a mixture of Argan oil, honey, and crushed almonds. It tastes a little like peanut butter and is great on toast.
    • 1/2 pound roasted Marcona Almonds
    • 1/2 to 2/3 cup Belazu Organic Argan Oil
    • 1/3 cup raw honey
    • In a food processor, or mortar and pestle, finely grind the almonds. Add the Organic Argan Oil a tablespoon at a time. Now add the honey until the desired sweetness is achieved. Serve in a small bowl with slices of pita bread for dipping

This organic Argan oil is suitable for vegans, vegetarians, and is gluten-free.

Rural Moroccans always knew Argan oil was good for you, inside and out. They actually rub their faces with their hands after eating a couscous dressed with Argan oil. In the spirit of that tradition, we can also recommend it for its beauty uses!! Since this oil is organic AND "food grade" it is higher in quality than those other "cosmetic grade" oils on the market today.

This product may not be suitable for nut allergy sufferers.

Packed in France from Moroccan oil.

Mustard Seed Oil (Yandilla) Be the first one to write a review

This versatile oil is gaining popularity among chefs for its pungent, food-friendly wasabi flavor and high smoke point. Use this small-batch, cold-pressed oil to create a bold vegetable sauté, perk up a salad, or add a kick to grilled shrimp.

I Peccati di Ciacco is a first choice for lovers of Piedmontese cuisine at its best! Made in the village of La Morra, outside Alba, world-famous for wine and black & white truffles, each product is made in small lots according to regionally-inspired recipes with careful attention to maintaining freshness and homemade goodness.

This white truffle extra virgin olive oil is both aromatic and finely balanced. Each bottle, using top quality extra virgin olive oil, contains actual pieces of white truffle (Tuber magnatum pico, found in northern and central Italy). Spectacular in casseroles, vegetable and potato dishes, soups, gravies, meat sauces/entrées.... this is truly a chef's companion. On hot pizza, and on popcorn, it's perfect!

No preservatives!!

Do not be fooled by other truffle oils that use grape seed, sunflower, safflower, or even "olive oil"... if they went cheap on the oil you know they went cheap on the truffle. Demand "extra virgin olive oil," the best. Plus those other "truffle oils" do NOT have actual pieces of truffle in them, another cost cutting step which gives their truffle oil a chemically taste. So they went cheap on the truffle too.

Only buy truffle oils, like this one, that use EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL and that have ACTUAL PIECES of REAL TRUFFLE in EVERY bottle. That way you are guaranteed to get real, pure truffle flavor. It is a difference you can taste!

Madonna Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Madonna Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil Be the first one to write a review

Antonino Mennella is a passionate young extra virgin olive oil producer from the Salerno area of Campania, Italy. On his small 2,000-tree farm he produces this limited edition Raro ('rare') extra virgin olive oil by removing the pits of the Ravece and Rotondella olives, and then only pressing the remaining fruit. This process is known as "denocciolate".

This pitting before pressing is unique, and it creates an extraordinary extra virgin olive oil unlike any other you will find.

Antonino uses advanced pressing and processing technology to provide a super extra virgin olive oil with double the average content of polyphenol antioxidants, and an astoundingly low level of free oleic acid. As a result, this extra virgin olive oil has almost the same level of freshness as an olive still on the tree.

La Madonna dell’Olivo has optimal levels of vitamin E tocopherols, and Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids. This extra virgin olive oil has a remarkably well balanced flavor profile and is thus a ‘double winner’ -- an elixir of good health with amazing flavor.

This is a deep, intensely fruity extra virgin olive oil with irresistible aromas.

"My objective," says Antonino, "is to fight uniformity and exalt differences." Try this Raro Extra Virgin Olive Oil and you will see exactly what he means!

“It was very interesting and good fun to work on this project as the production of First Day of Harvest brings to the world of extra virgin oils the same magic, feelings and passion that the characters in my films and my books convey,” said Álex de la Iglesia, a great supporter of Spanish cuisine.

Furthermore, the filmmaker also confessed his passion for exotic food. “I love Vietnamese, Thai and Brazilian food, and it’s amazing how these delicious Castillo de Canena oils can fuse with these types of recipes to create the most amazing dishes,” he explained.

In order to produce this wonderful, exquisite, cutting-edge cold smoked extra virgin olive oil, Castillo de Canena designed a unique process. Their burner allows the wood chips to slowly smolder. The smoke is then cooled, and passed through a water filter. They then slowly, over the course of 6 hours, release the cold smoke into the bottom of the tank which holds the Arbequina Extra Virgin Olive Oil. This artisanal process naturally imparts the smoky flavor and aroma into the oil.

  • Special blue bottles protect the extra virgin olive oil from harmful light.
  • No preservatives or artificial flavors.
  • This product contains no soy, gluten, nuts, dairy, or genetically engineered ingredients.

Produced and bottled by Castillo de Canena with olives grown, harvested, and pressed at the Castillo de Canena Estate in Spain.

The Horizontal Tasting (Castillo de Canena)
The Horizontal Tasting (Castillo de Canena) Be the first one to write a review

The Castillo de Canena Estate has produced exceptional extra virgin olive oils in the Guadalquivir Valley of Andalusia in the south of Spain since 1780. Their "21st Century Oils" program seeks to bring new features and fresh concepts to a category of products with over 3,000 years of history. You will experience limited edition extra virgin olive oils in unique ways.

This HORIZONTAL TASTING is a gastronomic experiment to observe the evolution of extra virgin olive oil harvested over three consecutive months (October, November, and December) from the same trees. The result is three extra virgin olive oils with totally different colors, aromas, and flavors. Each transparent bottle is covered with a UV filter to protect the oil while still allowing you to observe how color varies with each monthly harvest.

While tasting them side-by-side is a lot of fun, each extra virgin olive oil is worthy of its own place in your kitchen.
