- Honey has always been an important food. It has fed numerous populations and written pages of history. Egyptians, Sumerians, Greeks, Romans and Babylonians told legends and found new methods for using this ingredient, which Virgil defined as “the heavenly gift of dew”. Today, we say “sweet as honey”. However, sweetness is not the only adjective that defines this multi-faceted nectar.
Like in the case of chestnut honey, for example, which is everything but sweet. Its bitter and tannic taste goes perfectly with an array of cheeses from Caciotta to seasoned goat cheese, Asiago, Parmigiano Reggiano, semi-seasoned pecorino, Fossa and ricotta.
Our chestnut honey is recognisable for its dark brown colour and intense taste and is produced only in Emilia Romagna. A nourishing artisanal product, ideal for those who don’t have a sweet tooth but appreciate unmistakable and unforgettable flavours and aromas.
