I’m sitting down for what feels like the first time today. Cooking for the last three days in preparation for Thanksgiving has given me plenty of quiet time to think about what I’m thankful for. Besides my family, wonderful and supportive friends, and farmers who grow the food I eat, I’m grateful for every stakeholder – from consumers to retailers to chefs – that takes small actions that lead to meaningful change in our food system.
Honey sommelier, author, and beekeeper Marina Marchese of Red Bee Apiary will be the featured guest at the Winter Farmers’ Market at Norfield Grange in Weston on Saturday, November 30, from 12pm to 1pm. Marina will host a honey tasting and offer food pairing ideas for the holidays to farmers’ market shoppers.
In celebration of National Pollinator Week, Slow Food Metro North, Audubon Greenwich, and the Fairfield Green Food Guide are pleased to present Taste the Terroir of American Honey. 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. Red Bee Honey founder, beekeeper and author Marina Marchese will take guests on a tasting journey to discover the unique sensory qualities (terroir!) of 7 single varietal U.S. honeys featured in her latest book, The Honey Connoissuer, and how to best pair them with food.

Talk about culture shock. Chef Joe Wolfson of Terrain Garden Cafe, the eatery inside the the newly opened Terrain store in Westport, arrived in town two weeks ago from Alabama. No wonder there are grits on the menu. But they’re Alabama grits, sourced from a friend who grows them back home.
Chef Wolfson’s dedication to local sourcing will become evident over the next few weeks as he starts receiving produce and other farm-fresh foods from Red Bee Apiary in Weston, The Hickories in Ridgefield, Millstone Farm in Wilton, Holbrook Farm in Bethel and Warrup’s Farm in Redding. The cheeseboard already screams local with a selection of Connecticut and Vermont cheeses.
