When was the last time you bought someone a gift of food directly from the source? Local honey lovers, and anyone interested in becoming a convert, are invited to attend a very special holiday boutique at Red Bee Apiary in Weston on December 11 and 12, 2010 from 1-4 pm.
If you’ve never tasted single nectar source honeys side-by-side to compare and contrast them, this is your chance to do so with the beekeeper herself, Marina Marchese. Once you’ve picked your favorites, choose from a wide assortment of beautifully packaged individual bottles of honey or boxed gift sets that include lavender lip balm and beeswax candles. Relax by the fireplace and enjoy the live music as your gifts are boxed up, compliments of the house.
For the book lovers on your list, pick up a signed copy of Marina’s “Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper” along with some honey, honey-based skin care products, or beeswax candles. Carol Herman, the Books Editor at The Washington Times, named Marchese’s HONEYBEE one of the “Books We Loved” in 2009.
Marina’s transition from art director to beekeeper is being told via a beautifully produced Yahoo Second Act video and will no doubt lead you on a delicious adventure in local honey.
Red Bee Honey is listed in the most recent edition of Patricia Brook’s “Food Lovers’ Guide to Connecticut”, a best of the best foodie guide to Connecticut.
