|Wadaman Sesame: three products, three ways. You know how there are almonds, and then Marcona almonds? Pistachios, and Sicilian pistachios? There are also sesame seeds–and then sesame seeds from Wadaman. We have their roasted sesame seeds, sesame pastes, and sesame oils.
The seeds: single-source, roasted by a master sesame roaster who has been at it 6 days a week for 45 years. They taste different than seeds you roast in your oven: these are deeply crispy, have a nutty popcorn-like crunch to them, and each one is perfect. Salty Black, Roasted White, and Roasted Gold.
The oils: all of the oils are light-roast, and the oil itself is pale, clear, and closer to a nut oil than a toasted sesame oil in flavor. White, Black, and Gold Sesame Oils. This is the perfect item to lightly dress asparagus, peas, and favas with if you want to enhance without overwhelming their delicate spring flavors. They also make a Toasted Sesame Oil for when you want something more robust.
The pastes: as many of you now know, we have their Black Sesame Paste as well as Gold Sesame Paste. These are made from fully roasted seeds and are ground whole and unhulled, as opposed to tahini, which is typically hulled. That means these have a very robust, full flavor profile.
