Cooking Oil 101

Uncategorized

At Haggen we feature some of the finest organic and artisan oils on the market. With unique flavors and coloring, these oils can bring new dimensions to your experience of food. 

Choosing the right oil depends on how you plan to use it. For example, extra virgin olive oil—olive oil that is the result of the first pressing and especially flavorful and aromatic—is best enjoyed in dressings and dips or drizzled over pasta or cooked vegetables. By contrast the milder, less expensive virgin olive oil (from the second or third pressing) or sunflower oil work better for sautéing foods over medium to high heat. Flavored oils—and there are many to choose from—add subtle, new elements of taste to foods and merit exploration and experimentation as you plan your summer menus!
