Australia is not really known for its rainforests but prompt often enough and most people would have heard of the Daintree. It is a place of natural mystery with giant trees, lianas and dense undergrowth, where food is in abundance, if you know what to look for and just where to look. Some of the aromatic herbs used in this Splash come from our Australian rainforests. You’ll find this a really moreish infused oil Splash. I use it to marinate fetta, bocconccini and labne cheeses, char-grilled vegetables and it’s really made for lamb. Splash some over cutlets or a lamb roast or before you bake the lamb, stab the meat with a knife and drizzle the Splash into the cuts. You can stuff in some garlic slices too if you want.
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?
