Showcases the wonderful world of honey from hive to jar.
A beautifully illustrated global survey of the flavor of honey, The World Atlas of Honey includes profiles of more than eighty countries and the botanical sources of honey found in each. With text, illustrations, and photos, honey expert C. Marina Marchese takes readers through the global history of honey production from the earliest beekeepers to today's harvests.
This colorful guide celebrates the exceptional range and diversity of honey, revealing how terroir—the environment in which a food is produced—influences honey's qualities just as it does for wine, olive oil, coffee, and chocolate. The book also covers the methods used by honey sommeliers to taste and evaluate honey. Unique and authoritative, The World Atlas of Honey puts honey on the culinary map and elevates it to an epicurean treasure.
