La Tourangelle walnut oil is hand crafted in the Tourangelle artisan oil mill based in the Loire Valley in France. The walnut oil is made from the best walnuts, slowly roasted to perfection, and then pressed. Its strong, rustic flavours go brilliantly with raw bitter vegetables like endives and chicory.
