Average rating:

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.

Aji Limo Organic Chili Pods (dried)
Aji Limo Organic Chili Pods (dried) Be the first one to write a review

Aji Limo is a chili grown and used mostly on the northern coast of Peru. The pod is 2-3 inches long and changes from a yellow to deep reddish-orange color when it ripens. Aji Limo is spicy (a heat level of 8 on a scale of 10; 60,000 Scoville units) and is primarily used to prepare ceviche and rice dishes. It is also wonderful as a base for chicken and pasta recipes, and a perfect way to add an extra flavor dimension to stew and chili.

To create a paste, remove the stems and soak ajis in water overnight. Drain and mix ajis in a blender with salt, pepper, garlic and extra virgin olive oil. For a more mild paste, remove the seeds and veins before blending. You can freeze the paste for longer storage as necessary.

Honey Tea Towel Orange and Brown (Jean Vier)
Honey Tea Towel: Orange and Brown (Jean Vier) Be the first one to write a review

The spirit of the Basque people is most evident in the vibrant colors and patterns woven into their linen. For the past thirty years, Jean Vier has created fabrics based on these patterns from 100% natural cotton and flax. The resulting linen is elegant, long lasting, and the highest quality. Delightful to the touch and beautiful to behold, Jean Vier linen is a perfect addition to any kitchen or dinner table.

The universal designs, and timeless elegance, suit any home interior.

Drawing on a weaving tradition that dates back to the Middle Ages, Jean Vier produces both historical and contemporary versions of distinctive fabrics. They're unique in their legendary color resistance: Soak new linens overnight in cold water, and those vivid hues won't fade even after multiple washes.

This over-sized cotton tea towel is woven with a Jacquard weave, so the pattern is woven into the fabric instead of printed onto the fabric, so the pattern does not rub off, but instead lasts forever. These towels are machine washable, making them very easy to clean.

This style features bee houses, flowers, and bees in orange and brown tones.
