The Aromas of Huilerie Beaujolaise's Hazelnut Oil
Hazelnut oil is known for its rich and intense aroma, naturally reminiscent of the scent of fresh hazelnuts. It consists of delicate notes of roasted hazelnut and a slightly sweet and toasty aftertaste. These aromatic characteristics make it a beloved ingredient in many cuisines, adding a distinctive flavor to both savory and sweet dishes.
The Production of Hazelnut Oil at Huilerie Beaujolaise
Hazelnuts are first crushed before being cooked for 45 minutes. Then, they are pressed in a hydraulic press for 3 hours. Once decanted, the oil is carefully filtered through a paper filter. This artisanal production method gives the resulting oil a subtle toasty flavor, a result of this traditional process.

It is ideal in the kitchen for vinaigrettes, adding a touch of richness and hazelnut to salads. It can also be used as seasoning for grilled or steamed vegetables, as well as pasta dishes. In baking, hazelnut oil imparts a subtle flavor to desserts, especially in cakes, cookies, and creams.
