"A noble ingredient” to be used in all culinary preparations, traditional as well as innovative.

Andrea Paternoster’s dream is to capture the unique essence of each variety of flower. A nomadic beekeeper, Andrea travels with his bees throughout Italy, carefully following the flowering seasons of dozens of different types of flowers, to produce a beautiful variety of monofloral honeys whose flavors capture the essence and uniqueness of each flower. Key to his art is being in harmony with the bees and his ability to follow the natural cycles and the myriad of blossoms as they play out along the Italian peninsula’s climatic and geographical differences.

Mieli Thun Monofloral Honeys are produced without pasteurization or additives. In this way Andrea is able to capture the pure fragrance and flavor of each flower species in the respective honey.
The bouquet is strong, chemical, almost medicinal, with a distinct trace of linden flower aroma, followed by notes of incense and resin. in the mouth it is refreshing, with a taste of menthol, sage and lime, finish with very persistent aroma, balanced between citrus and bitter. lime honey owes its bouquet to a complex spectrum of 100 different volatile aromatic compounds.
Try diluting it in the cooking water for durum wheat pasta or spelt pasta, or in a butter and sage sauce to top pumpkin or spinach ravioli. in pastry cooking it can serve as the base for a ganache of extra bittersweet chocolate pralines, or as a sugar substitute in cocktails.

 

Accompaniments:

In all teas, herbal and floral infusions, fruit juices, fresh, low alcohol cocktails, like the bee’s knees. it goes well with any preparation containing sage, basil and lemon grass, or those containing fresh sausage or goat ricotta.
