Contrary to what many people think, a honey's color, consistency, and flavor do not derive from the bee, but from the source of th...e nectar. Some flowers produce nectar that creates a darker and stronger flavored honey, while others yield a lighter and more delicate recipe. There are hundreds of different honeys throughout the world, most of them named for the flower from which they originate. Castagno (Chestnut) Honey is smooth, creamy, dark and rich, with the woodsy undertone of chestnuts. Although honey is the sweetest of foods, chestnut honey has an earthy, semi-sweet essence that is very sensuous. Italians spread it over Gorgonzola melted on bread, but it is also an excellent choice as a glaze for sautéed chicken breasts or baked acorn squash. No honey should be fed to infants 12 months or younger. read more

Bresaola (Punta D'Anaca or Bundnerfleisch) is an air-dried, cured, and aged top round, obtained from the more valuable cuts of the... bovine thigh. Bresaola is intense, with a uniform red color, tender and soft texture, and a delicate flavor and spiced aroma. The origins of the Bresaola and Bundnerfleisch method of curing beef are very ancient, and date back to the time when the alpine populations of the Italian and Swiss region started looking for a way to preserve the meat all year round. They developed the traditional system of storing the meat for winter through rubbing, salting, and air-drying processes. Bernina Bresaola comes from grassfed Uruguayan cattle, raised in the open, with vast fields in which to roam. Grassfed beef is up to six times leaner than grain fed beef. It is a natural source of omega 3 fatty acids, rich in vitamins and minerals with no hormones, no antibiotics, and no animal by-products. The special surroundings of the Uruguayan region, with low temperatures throughout the year and its dry air, make it possible to use less salt in the curing process, therefore obtaining a tender beef with a delicate flavor and aroma. This Uruguayan Bresaola is delicious when sliced thin and topped with olive oil, lemon juice, and capers, or arrange a few thin circles on a plate and top with a peppery green salad. Also excellent on hors d'ouvre trays, anti-pasto platters, or sandwiches. Please note that weights vary. The 2.4 lb. is approximate. Please bear in mind that weights can be as extreme as an 8 oz. difference above or below the posted weight. As a result, the price is averaged out. read more

Except for adding electricity, Huilerie J. LeBlanc has changed little since 1878, the year it was founded. It is still run by a Leblanc, Jean-Charles, grandson of the founder. This is a product that delights the sauté chef while bringing unbridled excitement to salads. This unique oil with the taste of fresh green olives from France takes you on a culinary journey not unlike that of the major French "culinary stars" of Guide Michelin and Gault and Millaut to renowned restaurant chefs from Chez Panisse and Viognier. The best olive oils are the extra virgin olive oils meaning they have 1% or less acidity, as well as being "cold pressed". In the cold press process the olives are crushed between huge, finely chiseled stones to produce a pulp, which is then layered on mats and hundreds of tons of pressure are applied to extract the oil. These oils are unfiltered or refined. The Leblanc family has been perfecting this process since 1878. Remember great tastes start with using the finest ingredients. read more

Giachi Oleari is situated in the heart of the Chianti Classico area of Tuscany and is the passion of brothers Alberto and Francesc...o Giachi. Their foremost objective in producing this Extra Virgin Olive Oil is quality. The cultivation, timely harvesting, accurate pressing and expert preservation result in this superior Extra Virgin Olive Oil in body and structure. Part of these olives (all hand-harvested 50-60% Moraiolo, 15-20% Frantoio, and the remainder a mix of Leccino, Pendolino, and Maurino) are picked in the month of December. The olives are quite ripe at that point and give a softer, more delicately flavored oil. The health and handling of the olives is always of prime importance, because quality - though undoubtedly a result of soil, climate, and the variety of olive employed - also depends on a manual harvest which does not bruise the fruit and a pressing which takes place no more than 24-36 hours after the harvest in order to prevent the olives from fermenting after picking. The result is their Dolciolio oil, which is soft and delicate, as "dolce" is Italian for sweet. Extracted from late harvest fully ripened olives, this oil is ideal to complement more delicate foods. read more

Truffles grow underground and range in color from almost black to off-white. The white varieties have subtler flavors than the bla...ck truffles and lend extra virgin olive oil an almost garlicky flavor with full, earthy overtones. The white truffle is in season from September to December and is also used raw, thinly sliced over pasta, risotto, or omelettes. It has a very strong, pleasant aroma. The unique flavor and limited production of truffles command a price of up to $900 per pound, depending on the type. A superb way to capture their flavor and extend their use is to make truffle oil by soaking them in olive oil. Truffle oils are generally not used in cooking, as the heat adulterates their flavors. Instead, they are added after a dish is prepared or used in salads and other cold dishes. This quality truffle oil from De Medici achieves its pungent, woodsy aroma and earthy flavor by balancing the white truffle infusion with the delicate flavor of Ligurian EVOO. This compares favorably to the more commonly available truffle oils made with Umbrian oil, as the more forceful Umbrian extra virgin blocks the truffle flavor while only letting its aroma come through. Add a dash of this important condiment to pasta, risotto, eggs, or just about anything that needs an earthy, perhaps garlicky kick. read more

Olivado Extra Virgin Avocado Oil is quite simply the pressed juice of New Zealand's finest quality ripe avocados.

In addition, no heat or solvents are ever used to extract the oil from the fruit. Due to its high chlorophyll content, Avocado oil is very unstable and can degrade very quickly, so after extraction the Olivado subjects the oil to a unique and natural process that completely stabilizes it, retaining the goodness for up to 2 years in an uponened bottle.

Honey Wine Vinegar carries the aroma of sweet wildflower honey, followed by the tingle of vinegar. On the tongue the vinegar opens up with a smooth floral flavor that could only come from real honey. At only 4% acidity (compared to 6% for many vinegars), Honey Wine Vinegar has a lighter, softer flavor, making it perfect for pairing with a wide range of vinaigrettes, sauces, and marinades. Drizzle over ice cream, fruit, or gelato for an unexpected delight. Contains no sulfites or other additives, only naturally brewed honey vinegar and raw honey. read more

Minus 8 began as a hobby for two Canadian food lovers, whose identity must remain anonymous due to the extreme demand for this pro...duct. Heavily sought-after by the world's most outstanding chefs, Minus 8 vinegar (named for the temperature at which the grapes are picked to produce its base wine), is deep, complex and sweet. Up until May 2004, when igourmet convinced the reluctant pair to share their exquisite product, Minus 8 was unavailable on the retail market. Everything about Minus 8 is kept secret. It is produced near Niagara Falls, however the exact location is not published. Its makers produce Minus 8 the same way ice wine is made. Grapes are left on the vine past the typical harvest season and freeze at the onset of winter. The frozen grapes are then harvested by hand once temperatures cool down below -8 degrees Celsius, then immediately pressed to extract their concentrated juice. A blend of juices from various grape varietals is made into wine, then aged in oak barrels using the Solera system to create Minus 8 vinegar. Less than 5,000 bottles of this sweet vinegar are made each year, and we are offering it to you in the exclusive chef's 200 ML (6.76 FL OZ) bottle. Loved by Jean-Georges Vongerichten (Jean-Georges Restaurant in New York), David Daniels (The Federalist in Boston), Philippe Rispoli (Aureole in Las Vegas), and numerous other top chefs, Minus 8 can be drizzled over entrees, incorporated into a marinade, or even sipped as a digestive. It is also perfect as an ingredient in dressings, sauces, or reductions. Enjoy it with meats, fish, duck, chicken, and cheeses. read more

Using the Swiss Water Method, these beans retain all their flavor and are naturally rinsed of 99.9% of caffeine. These big, tasty ...Mexican beans come from the Mut Vitz ('Hill of Birds') Coffee Cooperative in the Northern Highlands of Chiapas. Like other indigenous peoples of Mexico, the Tzotzil farmers of Mut Vitz are under intense pressure from the government and the international corporate world to give up their identities and their lands. The pressures are as indirect as the international market price and the destruction of traditional landholding laws in Mexico, and as direct as armed incursions into the villages and the theft of their coffee harvest by paramilitaries. The beans are large and smooth, making for easy roasting. They have excellent aroma, medium body with slight acidity. A mellow coffee with a softly sweet flavor, these are the perfect beans for starting your morning. Certified Kosher by Vaad ha Kashruth of Springfield, Massachusetts. Whole Bean Coffee. read more
