Wild Fennel Pollen

Fennel pollen has an amazingly intense and sweet fragrance – more like anise than fennel – that beautifully complements seafood, particularly shellfish, creamy pastas and rice dishes, poultry, pork – and desserts (ice cream, créme brulé). Some recipes call for it as a meat rub, but we think that it is better used to finish a dish where it’s glowing golden green colour and sun-drenched aroma can be really appreciated. Because it is hand harvested from wild fennel at the height of bloom, it’s expensive, but you just need a pinch.
