La Tourangelle | with Matthieu Kohlmeyer, Founder and CEO | Woodland, California La Tourangelle has given new meaning to the term slow food. The maker of artisanal roasted nut oils has recently won top awards for their Roasted Pistachio Oil and Roasted Walnut Oil (gold and bronze Sofi, respectively, for Nut or Other Oil) and Roasted Peanut Oil (gold Sofi for Best Baking Mix or Baking Ingredient). The slow part comes from having to wait so long to get these top honors. “It takes time to perfect a craft and to maintain quality over time,” said La Tourangelle’s founder and CEO, Matthieu Kohlmeyer, “We’ve been producing high quality oils for a very long time in France and for fifteen years in California. Awards today show that craft is timeless, and it gives us encouragement to keep going. Artisan food means slow food so we are in it for the long haul.” Kohlmeyer’s parents produced roasted walnut oil in his mother’s homeland, France’s Loire Valley, and he became involved in the business. The family used a centuries-old traditional method of producing the oil handed down by Maître Mouliniers (Master Roasters). La Tourangelle’s stands among the few remaining oil mills in Saumur, France.
