White Truffle Honey

Happy Monday!

How was everyone’s weekend???!

On this Monday morning, I’d like to take a moment to remind us all that sometimes, it is the simplest things that are the best. Thing don’t have to be complicated to be fantastic. Exhibit A: White Truffle Honey!

I first experienced the amazingness of white truffle honey during a weekend in wine country where it was almost an afterthought on the menu description of a artisan cheese plate at Willie’s Seafood and Raw Bar. After ordering and trying said cheese plate, I would have rewritten the menu to look something like this…

WHITE TRUFFLE HONEY

Served with three delicious cheeses you can drizzle with WHITE TRUFFLE HONEY. Also comes with homemade crackers you can place the cheese on or just dip into the WHITE TRUFFLE HONEY. Pairs well with champagne, Pinot Noir, or more WHITE TRUFFLE HONEY.

Too much?? I didn’t think so. Seriously you guys, this is one of the best things I have had in a while. My husband and I nearly licked clean the way-too-tiny bowl of honey they gave us to pair with our cheese and homemade crackers (which really were delicious by the way). It doesn’t count as licking the bowl if you drag your finger across the bottom and then lick that, right??

As we were eating, I was imagining the amazing recipe for this amazing honey. I was imagining whole truffles soaking in the best honey being constantly stirred with special spoons and stored in handmade barrels at exactly 62 degrees for 17 years. Or something like that.

So you can imagine my surprise when I asked our waitress if she could share the recipe and she told me, “Sure, it is just white truffle oil and honey.” I had a bit of a culinary seizure. You mean there are TWO ingredients? No special honey made by bees in the northernmost region of Argentina? No absurd level of care? No having to special order whole white truffles from the internet? I just need white truffle oil and honey??! I couldn’t believe it!

The Happiest Place on Earth

Nope, not Disneyland! For me, it’s Healdsburg, California. And this weekend I was lucky enough to spend two blissful days drinking fantastic wine, eating amazing food, and catching up with wonderful friends. Mickey Mouse has nothing on me!

I love Healdsburg because you get all of the wine country feel of Napa or Sonoma, with so many added bonuses! The wineries are smaller, lots are family owned, and many are organic! People are so nice and unpretentious (sorry Napa, but you know it’s true!), and there is a small town feel that is so awesome. I could go on and on, but bottom line, start planning your trip to Healdsburg ASAP!  Continue reading →
