Honey and Malt Vinegar Dressing

“Honey is gorgeous swirled into hot or iced teas, and is said to help with allergies, heal wounds, soothe sore throats. And of course, honey adds beautiful heady flavor to savory and sweet dishes at the table.

Lucky are those who have beekeeping neighbors and reap the benefits of nearby honey and comb. At Commander’s Palace in New Orleans, Executive Chef Tory McPhail sources the honeycomb for his lush cheese boards exclusively from Bocage Bee & Honey in Baton Rouge. Elizabeth Holloway and Milou Barry, Bocage’s owners, maintain over 150 hives and produce stunning varieties of honey that taste of flowers or fruit or burned wood.

The buttery flavor of their Old Bridge honey is perfect drizzled heavily on a warm, flaky biscuit. When Milou had a restaurant long ago, she was famous for her tangy, honey-sweet salad dressing. When sharing variations of that beloved recipe, Milou says it’s not only spectacular on spinach salad, but is great as a dip for fried chicken, catfish tenders, and eggrolls. Sweet.” – Lorin Gaudin

  2. Transfer half of mixture to the container of a blender. With the motor running, slowly pour in half the oil to form an emulsion. Repeat with remaining mixture, then blend until creamy.
