Emile Noel was born in Southern France and raised on his family's oil mill. He had dedicated his life to creating organic, cold pressed artisan oils. Emile Noel oil mill only produces organic products which means that the produce selected is farmed without chemical fertilizers, synthetic pesticides, or GMOs. Organic foods also tend to have higher levels of healthy nutrients. When oil is cold pressed the seeds do not get too hot and release their oil slowly, which respects the seeds and their flavor.
Emile Noel also partakes in fair trade
sourcing and has been awarded the Organic Fair Trade by Ecocert.
There are over 20 organic virgin vegetable oils, including macadamia nut, extra virgin olive oil, and hazelnut, so you are sure to find one that suits your taste and cooking needs.
Now to the good stuff! I received a complimentary bottle of Pumpkin seed oil, which I was excited to try because I love all things pumpkin and I figured...let's push the envelope. The pumpkin seed oil has a delicious nutty flavor and it really brings out the flavor of many dishes. I've drizzled it over roasted squash, used it in a salad dressing with a little salt, pepper, and honey (hint, if you put nuts in the salad it really intensifies the flavor of the pumpkin seed oil), and I've put some in the batter of my pumpkin pancakes. I can't wait until the Fall when pumpkin season really kicks in.
