La Tourangelle Toasted Sesame oil is pure, all-natural and handcrafted from high-quality sesame seeds harvested from South America or Africa. The seeds are toasted and then expeller (machine) pressed to extract the oil. This oil is filtered several times and then bottled. Our mill slowly roasts the sesame seeds using lower temperatures. The result is a deep amber, richly flavored oil with a subtle toasted taste. Sesame Oil has long been the universal cooking medium in Asia, imparting the characteristic flavor to the foods of its regions. In Chinese and Korean cuisine, it is added as a flavor highlight to cooked dishes. The Japanese often add about 10% toasted Sesame Oil to the oil used for tempura or deep-frying, creating a rich, background flavor. American cooks may want to use Sesame Oil to flavor an Asian stir-fry or noodle dish or as a marinade for meat or fish. Sesame Oil, rice vinegar, fresh grated ginger, and mustard is a delicious dressing for any combination of salad greens. Sesame Oil, is an ancient ingredient. The Assyrians used it as a cooking oil more than 600 years before Christ. It was expensive, however, and a hundred years later in Persia only the rich could afford it. It is still used as a medicine in India , and oil pressed from the raw seed is a massage oil in Ayurvedic medicine. Its low saturated fatty acid content and high unsaturated fatty acid content makes it a very healthy oil. La Tourangelle is one of few remaining oil mills keeping a time-honored French heritage of roasting and pressing nut kernels into delicious oils. We are a family-owned company whose mastery of oil production is the fruit of passion, integrity, and pride. We strive to be the best artisan oil producer, dedicated to making carefully crafted, sustainable, natural products. With artisan care, we extract the seeds' essence and hidden natural treasures to create amazing products that bring delight in the kitchen and well being for the body.

I wrote this in October 2018: This oil is fine. It's packaging is awful. The spout leaks. Specifically: one doesn't binge pour a strong tasting oil, one slowly, carefully pours out a small amount. The cap on this metal-can-as-bottle has a lip which gets enclosed by the top half of the cap when it's closed. So far so good. But the can top has a lip too. Guess what, as you tilt the can enough for the oil to emerge from the spout onto your spoon, bowl, or food, the oil that's spilt into the lid's lip cascades over the top of it and rolls down, catching in the can top lip, where it then begins rolling around the outer edge of the can top. Where it'll get gunky, or be ready to spill onto a refrigerator shelf the day you knock the can over, or both. Protecting against this eventuality requires that one mop up the oil on the can top with a tissue or paper towel—each and every use. I've poured the oil into a competitor's newly-emptied glass bottle. C'mon, La Tourangelle…a leaky pouring spout is just nonsense.
Korean dishes often contain sesame oil and this is much more economical than the small glass bottles that I see in the grocery store in the Asian foods section.
My favorite recipe using this oil is Cheater Korean Beef, instead of the special cut ribs, you use ground beef.
Simply brown and crumble a pound of lean ground beef, toss with a tablespoon or two of sesame oil, and minced garlic. Serve over rice, and top with scallions and sesame seeds. Delicious and unique.
I also like that it comes in a light-protective tin (yep, tin, according to their site) bottle. This helps keep it fresh and full-flavored. The pour spout is nice, too. Little to no dripping.
But the main draw is the flavor. This is one of the best sesame oils I've used, and THE best at this price for this quantity. Bear in mind when using, a little goes a long way!
This oil is 100% pure sesame seed oil which is a product of Japan or Mexico (at least the can I have). The brand hails out of France, but appears distributed by the same company in Berkeley, CA.
It comes in an ample sized 16.9 ounce can. The can, which allows no light to filter through, keeps the oil from going rancid as quickly. I have never, personally, had that happen. It usually takes me 2 months to use an entire can. I use it to make stir frys and fried rice mainly. It imparts an excellent flavor to my dishes, WAY different than plain sesame oil.
For me, there are no cons, and I must like it because I keep purchasing it.
This has a good flavor and is good in Oriental dishes.
I could not find this oil in any food or specialty stores in DFW area and had to order it online. Arrived the next day which was perfect timing!!!
