Fragrant Grecian Fennel Seeds
Under the Acropolis Hill of Athens, in the neighborhood of Neos Kosmos, Daphnis and Chloe specialise in rare & forgotten terroir herbs of Greece, processing them lovingly by hand. These Mediterranean heirloom herbs rarely leave their places of origin.
In Greece, Evia’s island has a long tradition of cultivating a sweet, beautifully balanced varietal of fennel. Daphnis and Chloe's supplier, a third-generation farmer, makes sure that they receive the most aromatic part of his harvest every year. "He’s the cause of our love for good fennel!" they say. See for yourself. Fennelutionary. If a recipe calls for one teaspoon, 1/2 will do the job. Its balanced flavour makes it very combinable and equally successful in sweet or savoury dishes – pork, oily fish, cookies, tea; you name it! 55g.
