We love rapeseed oil here at Monkfish Towers and when Supernature got in touch recently asking if we’d like to sample some of theirs we were super excited. Supernature rapeseed oil is harvested and bottled at Carrington Barns Farm, just 8 miles outside of Edinburgh. We’re always very happy to be using ‘local’ products in the Monkfish kitchen and cutting down on our carbon footprint too. So, sample it we did. In no particular order we tried the original rapeseed oil, garlic infused, chilli infused, ginger infused, basil infused…and there’s still a couple more to try out in the pantry, happy days.
For those of you who don’t know much about rapeseed oil it’s packed full of nutrients and has amazing flavours. It’s perfect for salad dressings…or drizzling or dipping…or roasting or frying, and, stop the clock, even baking. Get that oven preheated Mr Monkfish, there’s a cake coming your way! With ten times more Omega 3 than olive oil, and with it growing on our doorstep here in Scotland we urge you all to try it, super versatile, super tasty and super good for you!
Back to Supernature….with a recent appearance at the Royal Highland Show and with a growing audience and enthusiasm for their products (Martin Wishart amongst others) we thought it would be a nice idea to do a giveaway for mymonkfish readers.
All you need to do is look out for the competition TWEETS (click to follow us) on Thursday and Friday this week and RT to WIN. Up for grabs are two gift boxes of infused oils, the classic range and the herb range. The boxes contain 4 bottles of oils, 100mls each. So, come on monkfish fans, keep your eye on TWITTER for the next two days and we’ll announce the winner at the weekend. Supernature will then deliver the boxes direct to you, yay!
And boo, if you don’t win, don’t worry, you can buy Supernature ONLINE HERE!
