The magic of plum oil

Plum oil (huile d'amandons de pruneaux in French) was first used in the food service industry in France for its ability to replicate the taste of almond oil and provide a rich almond flavour to sweets. It does not have a "plum aroma" but a rich and typical almondy , marzipan like flavour , more complex than that of almond oil. Because of this, it was first used by chefs as a substitute for almond oil, mixed with neutral tasting oils or balanced with other flavours to create original culinary partitions. But the use of prune oil goes beyond sweets and also capitalises on the growing trend for new oils pioneered by restaurants and food companies looking for original tastes in food. Rich in vitamin E (French food and safety agency), plum oil has not trans-fats and can be heated to 180ºC during frying.

From entrées to bakery

It can be drizzled over entrées, incorporated into marinades, used as an ingredient in bakery, salad dressing, vinaigrette and sauces or employed as a finishing oil to bring an "accent" to hot meals. Such is the richness of plum oil aroma that a subtle balance between sweet , salty and other flavours is essential for its successful inclusion in recipes . It explains combinations such as Armagnac and plum oil in ice creams , strawberry and plum oil in salad dressing , dark chocolate and plum oil in bakery or plum oil on sushi or with tapas . Plum oil can be mixed with other oils (as an example, with olive oil and green lemon juice for a vinaigrette) or used as such sprinkled on a fresh lettuce. The flavour is very rich so you will need only a few drops.

An explosion of flavours

When frying with plum oil, marinating fish or balancing it with other spices, you will notice how its perfume delicately mixes with other ingredients and brings you a new culinary experience that has inspired more than one.
