This sweet gift set from famed French honey producer Gabriel Perronneau includes four types of honey: acacia, spring blossom, mountain and chestnut. Each varietal is unique with its own characteristics:
Acacia: delicate, floral with subtle notes of vanilla. Great stirred into a cup of tea.
Spring blossom (Creamy Flower): a mild to medium bodied honey with rich floral aromas. Wonderful whipped with salted butter and spread on toasted brioche.
Mountain: medium-bodied with savory and herbal notes. Use in salad dressings or add to a glaze for roasted meats.
Chestnut: rich and full-bodied with a pleasing bitterness. Pair with French blue cheeses like Fourme d'Ambert or Saint Agur. Or, drizzle over crepes filled with lightly sweetened ricotta cheese.
