I was in Waitrose on Marleybone High Street the other day (searching for rosemary – I have a very hard time finding rosemary around me!) and I couldn’t resist checking out the oils section. As a result, I came across this Wok Oil and thought I’d give it a try. And of course, that means I’d review it for all of you! What really caught my eye was that it’s a combination of sesame, sunflower and ginger oils, with a little bit of garlic. The problem is that when I’m making stir frys, normally I start with a basic olive oil and continue on with it, until the end where I add a bit of toasted sesame oil for flavour.
We used it in a stir fry the other night. It’s hard to describe the taste it had (of course, as a food blogger, I have to try!) but you could definitely taste the hints of sesame and garlic, so it just made the stir fry taste a bit more sesame.
I really enjoyed this, as it got rid of the slight olive oily taste (which doesn’t always work in a stir fry!) and would recommend it to anyone near a Waitrose. It’s quite inexpensive and so definitely worth it if you regularly make stir frys!
