Looking for a special Valentine’s Day gift of local food? Author and beekeeper Marina Marchese of Red Bee Honey in Weston will be a guest at the Westport Indoor Farmers’ Market on Thursday, February 10 to conduct a tasting of her single nectar source honeys including buckwheat, pumpkin blossom and Tulip Poplar. If you’ve tasted wines under the guidance of an expert, you know how enlightening it is to taste them side by side to compare and contrast aromas, flavors, and colors. Honey tastings are conducted the same way and will give you a new appreciation for how nuanced and unique each single nectar source honey is.

Marina will be signing her book "Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper", which made the Washington Post's "Books We Love 2009" List

For the book lovers on your list, pick up a signed copy of Marina’s book, “Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper”. 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 also being told via a  Yahoo  Second Act video filled with beautifully filmed footage of her apiary and gardens.

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.

Red Bee Honeys can also be purchased at: Fairfield Cheese Company (Fairfield), Catch a Healthy Habit Café (Fairfield), Aux Delices (Greenwich/Darien), Plum Pure Foods (Old Greenwich), Mirabelle Cheese Shop (Westport), Practically Green (Ridgefield), Jones Family Winery (Shelton), Artisan Foods (Southbury), Tarry Market (Port Chester) and McLaughlin Vineyard (Sandy Hook).
