Our top grade Fennel Pollen is grown in California and many chefs considered this the highest quality fennel pollen in the world. With a long culinary history in Northern Italian cuisine just a pinch of fennel pollen can make an average dish extraordinary! Fennel Pollen started gaining in popularity in this country in the 1990’s when it was introduced to Chef Mario Batali. He says it’s amazing; you sprinkle a tiny dusting on something hot, and it gives you this heady fennel perfume. Fennel Pollen is sweet, pungent, and has all of the great qualities of fennel and then some. The flavor is similar to fennel seed only more intense. Just a dash of pollen can transform an average dish into supreme cuisine. Use to enhance seafood, poultry, pork, vegetables and soups. Small and granular, Fennel Pollen has a beautiful deep, greenish gold color. Like saffron the harvesting of fennel pollen is labor intensive which means even the tiniest amount is expensive. Each flower only produces about one quarter of a teaspoon. While not terribly difficult to harvest the artistry comes from the drying process which takes years of experience to perfect.
