Apicoltura Dr. Pescia Chestnut Honey
- SUGGESTED USES
- THE STORY
A complex, mysterious and nuanced honey from Tucany's premier honey maker.
In producing Dr. Paolo Pescia's Chestnut Honey, the bees are transported to chestnut woods in the hills near the Pescia farm. Chestnut honey has a molasses-like bouquet and flavor, and pairs marvelously with all sorts of savory foods. Try it drizzled over pancakes, baked goods or with full-flavored cheeses, like Gorgonzola or Stilton for a truly unique cheese course.
- Pairs well with blue cheeses such as Gorgonzola and Stilton
- Delicious as a breakfast honey when drizzled over pancakes or waffles
- Use in marinades to glaze roasts, game birds and root vegetables
Dr. Pescia seeks out seasonal flowers in bloom, then transports the bees to the fields and lets them forage around the Tuscan landscape. It can be challenging work, as the flowers he seeks can be in bloom for as long as several weeks or as short as one day.
All production is done by hand, including the scraping of the honey from the comb. It is left in its raw state and never filtered. Pescia Honeys are also free from chemicals and contaminants.
The results are limited-production, monofloral honeys of stunning quality and flavor. Dr. Pescia honey is a terroir-driven product that captures the aroma, flavor and essence of the Tuscan landscape.
