Chef Blend Premium Cooking Oil

Chef Blend Premium Cooking Oil


When developing this new product in 2012 for her chef clients, our oil maker, Nalini Baruch felt that it had to be a solution for their daily requirements, and from its inception, that is exactly what was achieved. She began experimenting with oil blends to make a cooking oil to use in dishes where extra virgin olive was not suitable. 

In 2012, LOT EIGHT Chef Blend was born and quickly established a reputation with chefs throughout New Zealand. Now, we have brought the blend to home cooks. The Chef Blend does not compete with the flavours of other food ingredients in the dish, yet it continues to impart the depth that extra virgin olive oil gives to a dish. Today, it graces the kitchens of 1,2 and 3 Cuisine Hat restaurants, luxury lodges, and flavour conscious eateries ranging from European to Japanese cuisine, and more.  The Chef Blend meets the requirements of all these cuisines for a clean, subtle oil and the oil maker also uses it in her own Indian and non- Indian cooking. 

Uses for this oil:

After six seasons as the mainstay in many restaurant kitchens, we are proud to bring the LOT EIGHT Chef Blend Premium Cooking Oil to the home kitchen. The quantities of extra virgin olive oil in the blend sets it apart from many other cooking oils and provide that necessary clean taste.  The careful addition of olive and vegetable oils help increase the smoke point, making it ideal for pan or wok frying, roasting and grilling. It is equally at home in the creation of sauces and mayonnaise; in other words, it is a perfect start for the perfect finish, a perfect foundation for cooking a dish.
