From the producer: 

La Tourangelle handcrafts this Toasted Sesame Oil strictly following traditional methods because we believe artisan care is still the best way to retain all the flavors, nutrients and health benefits that nature provides.

We believe the finest toasted sesame seed oil should be bold and complex but not overpowering. This is only achieved through carefully selecting the highest quality sesame seeds, which are lightly toasted, expeller-pressed, and gently filtered to perfection. The result is this golden-brown oil which adds rich, nutty flavor to your vinaigrette, stir-fry or BBQ marinade for authentic Asian cuisine.

Ingredients: Sesame Seed Oil (Sesame).

8.45 FL oz (250 ml)


This nutty, “liquid gold” is used in most of the recipes in this book, adding the necessary fat to balance the saltiness and acidity of the other pantry essentials. Use it to bind fillings for buns (House Special Pork Buns p. 20), bao (Vegetable Bao p. 22), fried appetizers (Scallion pancakes p.112), and everything dumpling-related (Pork Master Filling p.41, etc.)

You'll also use it frequently in sauces and marinades.
