CT NOFA is pleased to present a guided tasting of Connecticut honeys with Connecticut beekeeper, author and honey sommelier C. Marina Marchese. Marchese will take guests on a tasting journey to discover the unique sensory qualities (terroir!) of hyper-regional, Connecticut honeys including selections from Honey Oak Farm in Woodbury, Hannan Honey in Southbury, Autumn Harvest Orchard in Norfolk, and Marina’s own Red Bee apiary in Weston.
Marchese will also present guests with a tasting of Sourwood, a rare Slow Food USA Ark of Taste honey featured in her latest book, The Honey Connoisseur. There will be a few surprises too, so don’t miss this chance to taste the terroir of Connecticut honey.
Learn how to taste and pair each honey with a variety of foods as you savor small bites of select honeys paired with local food selections from New Morning Market.
Honey bees play a vital role in our food chain, pollinating one-third of the food we eat and producing a wide range of artisanal honeys. Please join us for this special tasting and opportunity to learn from CT NOFA member and founder of the American Honey Tasting Society (AHTS), Marina Marchese. AHTS is the leading resource for honey sensory education in the United States. Sensory analysis is a ground breaking concept in the traditional world of evaluating honey in the US, after all the future of honey lies in identifying its flavors for consumer pleasure and its culinary applications.
