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
A recipe passed down for generations in Grandmother Rose’s family, Mamma Rose’s Herb Blend is a traditional blend of sweet and savory. This medley of 100% organic herbs grown on La Furtuna Estate, including cloves, basil, summer savory and rosemary, is an irresistible Italian seasoning that will have you reaching for more.
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.
Wild fennel pollen can be used a number of ways in recipes from roasted. Meat and poultry to salads. Amazing aroma and flavor that enhances the eating experience.
Paul, we couldn't agree more. The Fennel Pollen can be used for so many meals and such a variety of ways, we find it fun trying it in lots of different recipes for breakfast, lunch, or dinner! Thank you for sharing!
My whole family is obsessed with the Bona Furtuna Fennel Pollen. We put it on everything from sweets to savories. One of my favorite easy recipes is 100% Bona Furtuna: Tagliatelle Pasta + EVOO + Truffle Salt + Fennel Pollen. That’s it. Nothing more and nothing less. Pure perfection. There is a TON of pasta in one package. Feeds 5 people in my house, including two teenage boys.
Grazie mille, Kim! That recipe sounds heavenly!
First time I used this product on pork tenderloin, very delicious
Ron, we're so happy to hear you enjoyed the Fennel Pollen! We keep discovering new ways to use the Fennel Pollen, but we keep coming back to the pork tenderloin as well, it's such a great finishing touch. Thank you for sharing!
the flavor is amazing, ordering 2 more jars now just to keep on hand because I know I will use this often.
Thank you, Joseph! It really is quite a unique seasoning and we're always finding new ways to use it. The Fennel Pollen actually just won an award from the Specialty Food Association for it's special flavor!
I absolutely love it! I previously have never used fennel pollen, so I experimented with it. I now add to my savory oatmeal daily. A little Bona Furtuna olive oil, sea salt, cracked fresh pepper, walnuts and then the addition of the fennel pollen sprinkled on top, makes the most delicious oatmeal ever. I now use on my avocado toast, and on top of scrambled eggs, which is amazing too. You will be craving this little spice, once you try it. I am amazed at how it has elevated such simple food.
Kelli, we'll have to try your savory oatmeal- that sounds delicious! But that's what we love about it, being able to try it on random everyday foods and creating something that feels new.
