    Don’t be afraid of the French name! This is a superb sesame oil and I think it will be my go-to from now on. Intense, deep toasted sesame flavor and scent. I cook a fair bit of Chinese food, and also like to add a bit of toasted sesame flavor to a bowl of instant ramen, and it’s great for both!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!

    For years, I tried and failed to replicate Chinese restaurant cooking. Being a cook for 30+ years, it was the only cuisine, I hadn’t been able to approximate at home. After reading many Chinese cookbooks, I picked out several universal ingredients, toasted sesame oil being one, this with the five spice powder are the two which has allowed me to replicate Peking pork, my favorite Chinese dish. I also tried some in some homemade bread dough, it adds much to the flavor.

    I’m very pleased with this sesame oil. I cook everything clean and from scratch. This has a lovely aroma and a very fresh taste. It is different from my previous sesame oil that was not “toasted”. It definitely has the distinct hint of being toasted. YUM! There are so many ways to use sesame oil. I use it my stir frys in a wok, it makes a mean sesame chicken, and a very good sesame salad dressing. I recently used it in my homemade beef jerky. Non-GMO and in one ingredient! Perfect!

    This toasted sesame oil has a deep rich flavor that makes it excellent on noodles and with vegetables.I am especially impressed with the price. Toasted sesame oil is usually allot more expensive in the states, making it forbiddingly expensive to use in the traditional manner.The low price and deep flavor of this toasted sesame oil allows me to soak all of my noodles and vegetables in toasted sesame oil without going broke.BTW: I would not recommend using toasted sesame oil for ordinary cooking. Regular, non-toasted sesame oil is much better, less expensive and less wasteful for cooking.Cooking with toasted sesame oil has a tendency of damaging its flavor.Toasted sesame oil is better to use on food after its been cooked or on salads and raw vegetables.I am very, very happy with this product.

    I unofficially collect La Tourangelle oils, and sesame is delicious. It is very fragrant and a little goes a long way.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.

    While it was delicious, this was far smaller than I was prepared for. I’m pretty sure I read the weight but it was still much tinier than I imagined (density of oil vs density of my head). As it is listed it’s no one’s fault but mine — just be prepared. The packaging however makes for a gorgeous bottle. Like something you’d want to propagate cuttings in on your windowsill. If you only use sesame oil once in a blue moon then it’s a good choice for you.

    This is super good tasting! It tastes just like toasted sesame seeds! I bought a wok and I’m learning to make Chinese food. I made my first dish, a vegetable stir fry, with a little of this oil and it was really terrific. The bottoms of the cream cheese won ton were lightly fried in the wok with a little oil too, then finished in the oven. I want to make my own dishes to avoid the excessive oil they use in restaurants. I’m going to use this again tomorrow for a vegetable fried rice. Sesame is a heavy oil so it’s not suitable for cakes or sweet dishes, but for savory things-yum! My bottle has an expiration date almost a year and a half from the day it was delivered. I’m sure I will be using it all before that. I’m keeping it in the refrigerator.

    I just opened my 3rd can of this product and it appears that, at least for the 16.9 oz can, they’ve fixed the drippy spout problem (as I wrote below in 2018 and am leaving intact). Apparently they’ve made the pour spout longer, resulting in a stream that overshoots the metal lip on the can below the spout. Problem solved! Now all the oil we pour goes where we intend it, and none dribbles down onto the top of the can. Bravo! and Five Stars :)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.

    Sesame oil is great to have on-hand for stir-fry dishes, and one of my personal favourites, teriyaki. What I love about sesame oil is that it’s such a rich, toasty, indulgent flavour, that brings a lot of sophistication to a stir-fry. Of course, I only recommend cooking your produce/meat in sesame oil for a stir-fry; cooking your rice with sesame oil will lead to a dish that tastes too rich and oily (for cooking rice, I prefer  Hollywood Safflower Oil, 32 Ounce Bottle , which has a high smoke point and is virtually flavourless). I’ve also found it essential for a good teriyaki, and my recipe for teriyaki sauce has now surpassed my former favourite restaurant’s!I really recommend this brand; I’ve tried a few others, and La Tourangelle is head and shoulders above the rest. And if you’re looking for a good teriyaki sauce recipe, look no further than Erin Alderson’s of NaturallyElla, in her broccoli chickpea bowl with homemade teriyaki sauce recipe; it’s a fantastic and simple dish that I whip up rather often, and my only changes are using a whole can of chickpeas, about a pound of broccoli, and half an onion, diced, pouring the entire sauce over the dish and simmering it together for about 5 minutes before serving it over white rice. Delicious!

    This is a great product at a good price. It is one of the best tasting sesame seed oils I have ever cooked with and is very flavorful. I have tried similar products only to find that the flavor was very mild and didn’t add much to the food that I was preparing. I keep buying this brand because I find the quality has been consistently good. If you’re hesitant about buying a can of oil via mail order don’t be, the product I received was very carefully wrapped and boxed so it arrived in pristine condition and was very fresh with a “use by” date of May 2019. It is 100% pure, non-GMO sesame oil and the can it comes in is BPA Free.
