- A natural flavour enhancer
- Expensive to buy

‘If angels sprinkled a spice from their wings, this would be it,’ raved Saveur magazine. ‘A natural flavour enhancer’, ‘a rare luxury’ and ‘saffron’s stiffest competition’, have trumpeted others. Nothing in the culinary world seems to have had such lavish praise heaped upon it as the de rigueur spice known as wild fennel pollen – with each teaspoon selling for astonishing amounts of money in specialist food retailers.
