Le Bon Magot - The Petite Collection
Collection of five (5) Le Bon Magot®
jams & preserves in 2oz size
- Brinjal caponata purple aubergine with cumin & curry leaves“Brinjal,” or eggplant, with its hearty flesh, gleaming purple skin and caviar-like seeds, is considered the “king of vegetables” in the Middle East and South Asia. Revered in Indian folklore, it is said to attract untold prosperity and treasure.
- Spiced Raisin Marmalata with Ras al Hanout & Smoked Cinnamon: This marmalade transports you down the Silk Road, through musky, oud-scented kasbahs and bustling markets. This is the backdrop of our Spiced Raisin Marmalata: ebony nuggets hang in a sweet-‘n-spicy syrup, honoring ras al hanout, North Africa’s signature blend of rose petals, cinnamon, and cardamom. While the peppery taste pairs with game, pork, poultry and cheeses, riff on a PB&J with feta and pine nuts for an East-meets-West treat.
- Tomato and White Sultana Chutney: The chutney has been a ubiquitous part of Indian cuisine since before 500 B.C., with each region relying on a distinctive spice blend to preserve locally cultivated or foraged produce. With the sweet fruitiness of tomato married to piquant Kashmiri chilies in this versatile chattni, you will not feel the need to reach for ketchup. Whether jazzing up charcuterie or simply applied on toasted ciabatta, this chutney may well become your plate-side companion at every meal.
- White Pumpkin and Almond Murabba: The gourd’s importance as a confection dates back thousands of years and continues today from the Southern Mediterranean to the Indian subcontinent. Layered with almonds, scented with cardamom, cinnamon and vanilla, this "murabba" or preserve calls Central Asia and Persia home. It is enriched with some of the world’s costliest spices, evoking festivity and is traditionally served during weddings. The murabba’s flavor profile pair with all game but are equally delicious with a humble slice of toast slathered with salted butter. For dessert to impress, drizzle warmed compote over vanilla ice cream and add a cardamom infused, white wine-poached pear or roasted figs.
