Raw Desert Honey from the Pahrump Honey Company

Rich amber in color and deeply sweet is PHC’s finest thanks to bees working the Great Basin Desert, collecting nectar and pollen from desert plants such as yucca, mesquite, wild flowers, orchards and alfalfa fields. Sample first—always fun—at the Fresh 52 Farmers & Artisan Market (Fresh52.com) on Saturdays at Tivoli Village (Rampart Boulevard and Alta Drive) and Sundays at Sansone Park Place (9480 S. Eastern Ave.). 12 ounces for $15, PahrumpHoneyCompany.com.

Basil Pesto Linguine at Kona Grill

While Kona is known more for its happy hour than anything else, the dinner menu does have some tricks up its sleeve. The basil pesto linguine features a generous portion of pasta studded with chicken, Andouille sausage and roasted tomatoes, all of which is smothered in a basil pesto cream sauce that has just the right amount of spice. When the linguine is gone, soak up the remaining sauce with the crispy garlic bread served on the side. $12, 750 S. Rampart Blvd., 547-5552.
