Slovenian beehives0002.jpgBeekeeper and author Elizabeth Gowing will guide us through a tasting of extraordinary honeys and reveal the fascinating history, geography, science and culture surrounding this unique food.

You will try vintage, ivy, carob and London honeys, among others, with paired foods and honey drinks.  Anna, the Culinary Anthropologist, will demonstrate several recipes using honey, including Ethiopian spiced honey bread, Greek loukoumades and honey ice cream.
