Nick Nairn on Mackintosh of Glendaveny

Chef shares his love for Gregor's family farm rapeseed oil

The Extra Virgin rapeseed oil, which is pressed and bottled on Gregor’s family farm at Glendaveny, contains half the saturated fat content and ten times more Omega 3 levels than olive oil and only six per cent saturated fat – the lowest level of any other oil on the market.

I love cooking with Mackintosh of Glendaveny rapeseed oil. It’s a just a lovely, artisan product made with care and real attention to detail.

Compared to other oils, it has a high burning point so is really versatile. Add in all the health benefits in terms of Omega 3 and you have a great local alternative to olive, sunflower and vegetable oils.
