Rapeseed oil producer marks 10 years with prize to win Michelin starred lunch


A Thixendale based rapeseed oil producer is celebrating its tenth anniversary by launching the seventh of 10 competitions that are running throughout the year.


To help the artisan oil producer to celebrate its tenth anniversary, the team at East Yorkshire's only Michelin starred restaurant, The Pipe and Glass at South Dalton, have donated a prize of a two course lunch for two people.

Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil's marketing manager, Jennie Palmer said that they are delighted to mark their anniversary year with a prize from the Pipe and Glass: "The pub's owners, James and Kate, have been so supportive of us and have used our oil in their kitchens since we launched ten years ago, so it seems very fitting that they are playing an important role in our anniversary celebrations."


Of the prize, James Mackenzie said: "We've known Adam and Jennie since they set up in 2008, just two years after we opened and it's been a pleasure to see how they have built the business over the years. I'm particularly proud that their oil with black pepper is inspired by a version I made some years ago to drizzle on our Yorkshire strawberries three ways!"


To enter, simply like and share Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil's competition post on facebook, and let them know who you'd like to take for the gourmet lunch.

  3. Yorkshire Rapeseed Oil was established in 2008 when Adam and Jennie Palmer began cold-pressing their own oil seed rape and taking it to farmer's markets. They call North Breckenholme farm their home, situated on the edge of Yorkshire Wolds and on the outskirts of the North Yorkshire village Thixendale, close to Malton.
  4. The cold-pressed oil is extracted using a natural and chemical-free method, and is extra virgin as it is put through the presser just once. This means it retains all its taste, colour and health benefits, with a balance of omega 3, 6 and 9.
