Marina Marchese, author, beekeeper and Italian-trained honey expert, will present an intimate guided tasting of rare and exotic honeys with mead and cheese pairings. During the evening, she will discuss how bees make honey, how terroir - floral source, seasonality, region and climate - affect the color, aroma and flavor of each honey. This special event is the ultimate gourmet, honey lover’s experience! We are using the hashtag #tastethemoment for this event.

Several of the honeys have received special designation from Slow Food’s Ark of Taste, an international catalog of foods threatened by industrial standardization, large-scale distribution and environmental damage. By learning about and eating these culinary treasures, we help ensure their continued survival, through cultivating consumer demand, which is key to agricultural conservation.

  • Gallberry (US) – rich, elegant, citrusy and aromatic
