Beekeeping 101: Honey Tasting

45.00

In the fourth and final class of our summer beekeeping series you’ll get an in depth look at the complex flavors that compose honey. This tasting is the ultimate palate training: the different properties and taste profiles of different nectar sources are immediately apparent in honey, which is arguably even more terroir-expressive than wine.  You’ll taste honey from around the world, discover how honey from the same hive can change over the course of a season and explore what nectar sources you love and which ones you could live without.

You'll leave a regular connoisseur of this sweet, sticky substance.

The course will start with a brief history of beekeeping, the issues around beekeeping today, and the importance of apiculture in maintaining a healthy food system. We’ll discuss honey label regulations (or lack thereof) and the best places to find raw, local honey in NYC.
