The earthy, smoky flavor and meaty texture of the portobellos combined with the zing of our Fennel Pollen make this an excellent meat substitute or side dish.
A Zing of Flavor
Imagine isolating a fennel seed, making it significantly sweeter and a hundred times more intense to the palate. Taste subtle hints of hay, honey and citrus balanced with zings of freshly ground anise in our Italian fennel pollen seasoning. To the nose, the aroma is musty with deep floral notes. The most potent form of fennel, the pollen gives a sense of terroir to a dish and instantly elevates flavor.
Add a Dash of Extraordinary
Long used in Italian cooking, fennel pollen is golden yellow with rustic green specks of magical flavor. Hand harvested from the Sicani mountains at La Furtuna Estate, organic fennel has hollow stems that bloom small yellow flowers. Pollen is collected from the flowers and tediously dried with a deft touch. Tiny and amber, a gingerly pinch of this fennel pollen spice is all you need to transform an average dish into supreme cuisine.
Brings life to any dish
After a recent trip to Tuscany I was in search of bringing a little Tuscany back into my life and I found it in this delicious bottle. The smell is amazing! Absolutely love it.
Flowers in a jar
This fennel pollen is very clean tasting and has a lovely sweet, taste. Love it on roasted garden vegetables and chicken, and am still experimenting!
Narda we are thrilled to hear that you have been enjoying the Fennel Pollen! If I can, I would highly recommend testing our pork tenderloin and mushroom sauce recipe.
Wonderful addition to my spice rack
The Bona Fortuna fennel pollen is a unique and flavorful spice that has a sweet, anise-like flavor that is both aromatic and delicate. One of the great things about this fennel pollen is that it is extremely versatile and can be used in a wide range of dishes. It can be used to flavor meats, seafood, vegetables, and even desserts. It pairs well with a variety of ingredients, including citrus, garlic, and olive oils. I like to use this fennel pollen is as a finishing spice, adding it at the end of the cooking process to allow the delicate flavors of this wonderful pollen to really shine through and give my dishes an extra layer of depth and complexity. Overall, Bona Fortuna fennel pollen is a wonderful spice that is worth trying if you enjoy bold and aromatic flavors. Just be sure to use it sparingly, as a little goes a long way.

Taste of Italy
This is an amazing seasoning. I have added it to bolognese (bobby flay recipe) and it truly elevates the sauce to another level. Also wonderful on salmon. Cannot wait to try in different recipes. LOVE!
We are very happy to hear you are loving our Wild Foraged Fennel Pollen! Sounds like you are quite the chef yourself! When can we come over? Haha. : )
This fennel spice is highly aromatic and i definitely recommend using it in dishes like pasta fagioli or in preparing a pork roast.
Pork roast is one of our favorite ways to use the Fennel Pollen as well (although we're always discovering new uses for it)! Thanks for the feedback!
