Pressed and lightly filtered, this oil adds a rich almond taste to salad dressing, pasta, grilled meat or fish, baked pastries, and is perfect to dip with bread. It has a fresh roasted almond flavor, the oil reveals subtle nuances when combined with other ingredients. Its delicate character makes it a good substitute for olive oil in cases where walnut oil and hazelnut oil are just too powerful.
