A Taste of Honey!
Featuring Marina Marchese,
Weston Beekeeper and Honey Expert

A Wonderful Mother’s Day Gift for the Special Mom in your Life!
$150

Marina Marchese is the designer and beekeeper behind the beloved brand, Red Bee Honey and the co-author of The Honey Connoisseur: Selecting, Tasting, and Pairing Honey.  She is a Member of the Italian National Registry of Experts in the Sensory Analysis of Honey and founder of The American Honey Tasting Society.  In 2000 Marina was invited to visit a neighbor’s apiary where she had her first taste of fresh honey from the beehive.  That taste changed the course of her life.

Marina will take guests on a journey into the fascinating world of bees and honey while opening up the conversation about plants, pollination, local food and artisanal honey. Participants will experience firsthand the multi-sensory art of tasting and pairing a selection of single-origin honeys through a guided tasting. The color, aroma, textures and flavors of each honey come alive and guests will be delighted and amazed at the diversity of honeys and their unique flavor profiles.

The health benefits of honey are too numerous to name but honey is nature’s energy booster; it is an immunity system builder and it aids in the prevention of cancer and heart disease.

The tasting will be paired with delicious cheeses, small plates, Prosecco and red wine.  Menu to follow soon!
