Spices & Seasonings

Fennel Pollen

Why was this product created ?

We must admit we have a soft spot for rare, precious, aromatic seasonings.

Distinctive features

Tiny grains of pollen are harvested from female, wild fennel plants just before they bloom. This organic product is commonly used in Tuscany, where it is often called “spice of the angels”.

Origin

Located in the high hills of Roccascalegna in Italy which enjoy a mild and temperate climate throughout the year, the recipes are made from raw materials having benefited from the best conditions to develop.

The artisans behind the product

The Laurentiis family has carefully prepared several Italian specialties for two generations. Passionate, they share with pleasure authentic and traditional recipes more delicious than the last.

Uses

Mix it with a bit of sea salt and black pepper and sprinkle on chicken, fish or potatoes. Fennel pollen is also the perfect Tuscan ingredient to enhance any pork recipe.

The artisanal business Casina Rossa (red house in Italian) has been based in the Abruzzo mountains for two generations. The cooks prepare typically Italian specialties following their grandmothers’ methods, such as simmering tomato sauces over low heat. The company focuses on using the best local products and superior quality ingredients. The artisans’ talent and know-how are the reason Favuzzi chose them to make its branded tomato sauces and truffle olive oil.
