In the final class of our beekeeping 101 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 include 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.
