Honey Connoisseur
Marchese, C Marina (Author), Flottum, Kim (Author), Tanguy, Elara (Illustrator)

From honey experts C. Marina Marchese and Kim Flottum comes this comprehensive introduction to the origin, flavor, and culinary uses of more than 30 varietals of honey, from ubiquitous clover to tangy star thistle to rich, smoky buckwheat

Like wine, cheese, coffee, and chocolate, honey has emerged as an artisanal obsession. Its popularity at farmers' markets and specialty food stores has soared as retailers are capitalizing on the trend. The Honey Connoisseur teaches consumers everything they need to know about how to taste, select, and use a diverse selection of honey.

After a brief explanation of how bees produce honey, the authors introduce the concept of terroir, the notion that soil, weather, and other natural phenomena can affect the taste of honey. As with wines, knowing the terroir of a honey varietal helps to inform an understanding of its flavor.

The book goes on to give a thorough course in the origins of more than 30 different honeys as well as step-by-step instructions, how to taste honey, describe its flavor and determine what other flavors pair best with a particular honey. Also included are simple recipes such as dressings, marinades, quick-and-easy desserts, and beverages.

Beautifully illustrated and designed, The Honey Connoisseur is the perfect book for foodies and locavores alike.

Taste of Honey: The Definitive Guide to Tasting and Cooking
Simmons, Marie (Author), Smith, Meg (Photographer)

A "Taste of Honey" is a fact-filled guide to honey and bees with a comprehensive glossary of 40 varietal honeys and over 60 fresh and easy recipes, both savory and sweet, using these honeys.

Holy honey! "Taste of Honey," with its lush photos and delectable recipes, not only teaches how to best use single-origin honey in the kitchen, it reminds us that honey is an almost magical substance, connecting us to our landscape, and to the hardworking honey bee. Marie Simmons s book has made robbing the hive even sweeter. Novella Carpenter, author of "Farm City"

It s rare to see such an information-rich book presented in such a cheery and beautiful package. We also need to know more about this important, timely and also timeless subject. A well-written tome packed with good recipes comes as no surprise, since this is from Marie Simmons, one of the absolute best food writers around. I read this one cover to cover.

Mollie Katzen, author of "Moosewood Cookbook" and "The Heart of the Plate " "I m a honey collector, too, but unlike Marie, I tend to stick to a drizzle of honey over cheese, toast, or hot cereal and the occasional dessert. There are so many more ideas here for using honey, not only the recipes but the more informal suggestions that follow each chapter my favorites. And I do hope that the appeal of honey itself with lead us to care more for our struggling bee populations."
