Bluegum smoke oil is a naturally derived flavour designed to add that special taste of Australia to grilled meats, roasted vegetables and any dish where a subtle hint of the Australian BBQ can enhance, tempt and tantalize. Bluegum smoke oil is a complementary product to Paperbark smoke oil and while paperbark has a full smoke taste, just like baking food wrapped in paperbark, Bluegum smoke oil is more reminiscent of a backyard BBQ. It has a more subtle impact yet is clean and distinctive and quite unlike the harsher wood smokes of mesquite or hickory commonly used in American cuisine.
A very Australian flavour oil which is often used in combination with honey. However, other complementary flavours include other aromatic ingredients eg garlic, caramel, smoke, many herbs, ginger, to name a few. The important point in using Gumleaf oil is that tasting it several times in a row will deaden your taste for the oil and while it may appear to be lightly flavoured, for anyone tasting it for the first time, it will be over-powering.
Paperbark smoke oil is a delicious flavour oil used in the same ways as truffle oil only even more versatile. It is ideal for any meat, fish, shellfish, vegetable (try it over roasted sweet corn on the cob), eggs, rice, mash, condiment, dressing in fact, any dish that a subtle hint of smoke can enhance. Try a seeded mustard made interestingly smoked with just a dash of paperbark smoke oil. Whisk some in to your favorite sauce. It even works in a basic custard or how about some paperbark smoked ice cream?
