Charlie Beldam, owner of Cotswold Gold www.cotswoldgold.co.uk, has been producing this super food on his family farm for the last two years and says ‘The aim was to produce a healthy oil that can meet all culinary needs. Cotswold Gold is a natural extra virgin rapeseed oil, extracted by traditional cold pressing. This preserves the unique natural health benefits and gives the oil its vibrant golden colour. We developed Drizzle to provide a versatile enhancement for hot and cold dishes and the blend of Cotswold Gold with raspberry vinegar has really achieved a sensational taste’.
Cotswold Gold is suitable for all types of food preparation it has a nutty, fresh taste and is perfect for roasting, frying or any other form of high temperature cooking. The smoke point of extra virgin rapeseed oil is 230 degrees, compared to the 190 degrees offered by extra virgin olive oil. The oil is a favourite with professional cooks, has been selected by Raymond Blanc for use in his kitchens and cookery school and is used in demonstrations for perfect mayonnaise by James Martin.
