Artisanal Honey Tasting w/ Red Bee Honey's Marina Marchese

CTbites Team

In celebration of National Pollinator WeekSlow Food Metro North, Audubon Greenwich, and the Fairfield Green Food Guide are pleased to present Taste the Terroir of American Honey. Honey bees play a vital role in our food chain, pollinating one-third of the food we eat and producing a wide range of artisanal honeys. On Saturday, June 22, from 4-6 pm, Red Bee Honey founder, beekeeper and author Marina Marchese will take guests on a tasting journey to discover the unique sensory qualities (terroir!) of 7 single varietal U.S. honeys featured in her latest book, The Honey Connoisseur, and how to best pair them with food. 

Rare and coveted for its distinctive flavor profile – floral notes with warm hints of baking spices and anise – sourwood honey is a national treasure cataloged on Slow Food USA’s Ark of Taste. Marina Marchese will be celebrating this regional honey plant’s contribution to biodiversity, while honoring Slow Food USA’s work to promote and preserve it, with a special tasting of an award-winning harvest of sourwood honey.
