Orange Walnut Waffles with Blueberry Balsamic
Serves 4
  • 1½ cups all-purpose flour, unbleached
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon baking soda
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • 2 large eggs
  • ¼ cup Vita Sana Blood Orange Olive Oil
  • 1¼ cups orange juice
  • 1 tablespoon Vita Sana Wild Blueberry Balsamic Vinegar, plus extra for drizzling
  • ½ cups chopped walnuts
Chop the walnuts into small pieces, if they are left too large, they may get in the way of your waffle iron plates.  If desired, you can toast them in a dry skillet over low heat for about 15 minutes.
In a medium bowl (preferably with a pour spout), whisk the dry ingredients (1½ cups of flour, 1 teaspoon each of baking soda and baking powder, and ½ teaspoon of salt). Set aside.
In a separate bowl, whisk the 2 eggs, 1¼ cups of orange juice, ¼ cup of Blood Orange EVOO, and 1 tablespoon of Wild Blueberry Balsamic.
Pour the liquid ingredients into the dry and stir until combined and moist.  You want the batter to be a little lumpy.  Gently fold in the chopped walnuts.
Cook waffles according to your waffle iron directions.
Add a dollop of whipped cream, if desired, and garnish with orange slices.  As an alternative to syrup, we like to drizzle the Wild Blueberry Balsamic directly over the waffles.  You can also use our Vermont Maple balsamic or any of our fruity flavors.

Brillat-Savarin is a triple cream dessert cheese. It is an industrial cheese produced by three dairies situated in the Ile de France region. Since classified as a triple cream cheese, Brillat-Savarin has a fat content of at least 75% achieved by adding rich, luscious cream to whole milk. Young cheeses taste similar to fresh cheese but usually they are matured for about four to five weeks to develop more complex flavours. 
A matured Brillat-Savarin has a typical white, bloomy rind with an interior paste that is buttery-white in colour. The texture is dense, moist, and slightly chalky with enough lusciousness and creaminess for a triple cream cheese. Flavours are of butter, salt and cream with hints of mushroom, nuts and truffles.
Brillat-Savarin pairs well with Pale Ale and Champagne and sometimes with a Domaine Chandon Rosé or a Viognier.

   These bundles of spaghetti are handmade. A wonderful flavor and perfect texture in this gluten free pasta made exclusively with rice and corn flour in a 100% gluten free factory. Use with any sauce.

Siagon Cinnamon
Saigon (or Vietnamese) cinnamon, a member of the cassia family, has the boldest flavor and odor of all the various cinnamon due to its higher volatile oil content. Add this to Mole and grilled sweet potatoes for a delicious treat.
