Black Truffle Honey from Lunardi
Italian Acacia Honey Married With Italian Truffle
As seen in the December 2009 Bon Appetit.
The Lunardi family was making truffle honey before it became popular to infuse all manner of things with truffles. We're very particular when it comes to "truffled" products because there is often only truffle "aroma" as an ingredient, not actual truffles. But the flavor of this honey turned our heads.
Rich and earthy, this is a match made in heaven. The sweetness of the honey masks the depth of flavor in the first instant that the honey hits your tongue...but the sweetness melts into a gorgeous, deep, earthy truffle flavor. We serve this honey alongside chunks of Parmigiano-Reggiano and watch the looks of "ooh" & "aww" creep into the faces of our guests.
