Terry & George’s Top Five Tips for Using Rapeseed Oil

28th October 2016

Introducing Terry & George

We teamed up with pop-up restaurateurs Terry & George to celebrate the relaunch of the Rapeseed Oil Benefits website. The duo are made up of chef Terry Edwards, who has trained and worked under Michelin-starred chefs including Michel Roux Jr and Mark Hix; and George Craig, singer in indie band One Night Only, occasional Burberry model and foodie.

We invited food bloggers and writers to join us for dinner and Terry & George cooked up an exclusive menu. Now they’re sharing their foodie tips.

Terry & George’s Top Five Tips for Using Rapeseed Oil

Get baking:

Rapeseed oil is a great alternative for butter when baking cakes like our Lemon and Rapeseed Oil Cake. It reduces the overall saturated fat content and gives them a fabulously light texture and a subtle, nutty flavour.

Perk up your potatoes:

We love to drizzle our mash with cold pressed rapeseed oil to jazz it up, giving it a wonderfully golden colour and the most amazing flavour – sMASHing!

Store in the dark:

All cooking oils are sensitive to heat and strong sunlight, so storing rapeseed oil in a cupboard rather than on the kitchen counter helps maintain flavour and nutrients.

Dress up your dishes:

Rapeseed oil makes for great dressings, vinaigrettes, mayos and marinades. We like to marinate some meaty monkfish tails with rapeseed oil, chopped rosemary and a little crushed garlic.

Mix things up:

One of the best things about rapeseed oil is its versatility. It’s the answer to nailing the perfect roast potatoes, sizzling steaks, super stir-fries and much more besides.

If you need any more hints and tips for using rapeseed oil then our recipe section should inspire you.
