Camellia Oil

Flexitarian Sep 11, 2013 07:56 AM

I was just reading an article in the Globe today about a Chef who uses Camellia Oil (on raw pork nonetheless!), also apparently known as Tea Seed Oil (not to be confused with Tea Tree Oil!) Anyone know where I can get it in Toronto?

    I wonder if they're referring to "camelina" oil (although a Google search reveals that "camellia" does exist) from Saskatchewan. Here's the producer's website, which contains a listing of retailers.

      I do know about camelina oil from Saskatchewan but this is not what was mentioned in the article, http://www.theglobeandmail.com/life/f...), which referred to 'oil pressed from camellia seeds'.

      I may be WAY off on this, but if I were looking for something like that, I'd start at J-Town, Pat Mart, or maybe even Al Premium.
