A slightly sweet oil with mushroomy notes. Add a dash to lift the flavour of shellfish, or wine-based sauces. Splash a little into minestrone soup, or drizzle over foie gras salads. Try mixing with a little lemon juice and serving as a dressing for an avocado salad, or freshly grilled fish. Pine nut oil brings a seductive flavour of toasted bread to goats' cheese, and is simply divine when used in home-made pesto.
