Talk, Tour, and Honey Tasting at Red Bee Apiary
Jul 14, 2013
1:00 pm until 3:00 pm
Guests will be welcomed to Red Bee Apiary in Weston, CT for a tasting of five distinctive single-origin honeys, all listed on Slow Food’s Ark of Taste, a catalogue of foods that have become “endangered” due to factors such as industrial standardization and environmental damage. Guests will participate in a tour through the apiary before gathering at farmhouse-style tables to engage their curiosity through discussions and to taste artisanal single-origin honeys with locally produced and estate-grown culinary pairings. The featured honeys include: rich, buttery tupelo; citrusy gallberry; effervescent kiawe; floral sourwood; and delicate and distinctive guajillo. Marina Marchese, founder of Red Bee Honey and the American Honey Tasting Society, is a recipient of the Slow Food Metro North Snail of Approval for her efforts to educate the public about these endangered foods.
