A few weeks ago, I told you about Pollen Ranch Spices (http://www.pollenranch.com), a remarkable company in the picturesquely named town of Lemon Cove, California. My initial introduction to the company was their Fennel Pollen, a key ingredient in a recipe for Porchetta that I posted on Chewing the Fat. Here’s the link: http://www.chewingthefat.us.com/2010/07/porchetta-slow-roasted-pork-shoulder.html. Along with the hand collected organic fennel pollen, came a second tin of something called “Zen-sational”. Pollen Ranch calls it ‘your secret ingredient'. It’s a secret I’d latch on to if I were you. It gave this simple Asparagus dish a great new taste. And exactly what is “Zen-sational”?
Lillet - A tasting of Lillet, a French aperitif made from oranges, wine and roots, near Bordeaux.
