Essential Pantry Rice Bran Oil from ChefShop.com

Today I would like to introduce you to the fabulous online gourmet shop called ChefShop.com where you can find a large variety of gourmet cooking and baking ingredients like Balsamic Vinegars, Gourmet Baking Chocolates, Chutneys, Dessert Sauces, various Grains, Jams & Jellies, various Fruits & Veggies, various Beverages and so much more! I could browse this site for days on end just discovering new products that they carry.

My Review: The generous folks over at ChefShop.com sent me a 1/2 gallon bottle of their Essential Pantry Rice Bran Oil to review for all of you. Serving Size is 1 Tbsp. which equals 130 calories. This oil leaves no lingering aftertaste so try it in any recipe that calls for oil. This product improves the taste of baked goods, providing cholesterol reduction, nutritional and anti-oxidant value. Excellent balance of saturated, monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats, as recommended by such organizations as the American Heart Association and the World Health Organization.

Usage Suggestions: Extremely versatile, rice bran oil is an excellent choice for baking as well as just about any cooking method, from deep-frying to pan-frying, sautéing, and stir-frying. You can also use it to make your salad dressings too!
My husband and I love fried potatoes so we decided to slice up some white russet potatoes along with some onions and sprinkled on some of our favorite spices. We sauteed our potatoes in the Rice Bran Oil for about 15 minutes until they were done. I served them to my family for dinner one night along with our steaks and after our dinner I asked my family what they thought of the fried potatoes. Everyone said they tasted great and asked me why? I told them that I used a Rice Bran Oil instead of our traditional oil and they couldn't believe that I switched the oil and they didn't even notice! yeah!!!

The following day I made some chocolate cupcakes and instead of using the called-for vegetable oil I used a 1/4 cup of the Rice Bran Oil and let me tell you...my chocolate cupcakes came out moist and delicious!

Overall Impression: We have been using this Rice Bran Oil for over a week now and we absolutely love it! I love that I am now using a "healthier" oil in all of my recipes and I love that it doesn't change the taste of our foods at all. I highly recommend this product to you!

I'd like to try the Spanish Oritz "Big" Anchovy Fillets to add flavor to Southern Italian marinara sauce. That on top of spaghetti and served with plenty of red wine.
