From Red Bee Honey of Weston, Carla Marina Marchese, Italian-trained honey expert, will lead an educational talk and guided tasting of 6 American honeys paired with local cheese and seasonal produce. Participants will learn about honeybees and their essential pollination services that bring us fresh fruits, vegetables, nuts, seeds, spices – even coffee, chocolate and blue jeans! Learn how honeybees make this liquid gold we call honey, how terroir and nectar source determines a honey's color, aroma and flavor while engaging your senses to pick out aromas and flavors in each varietal honey. This is truly a unique honey lover’s experience!

Carla Marina is a member of the Italian National Register of Experts in the Sensory Analysis of Honey, where she received her formal training, and the author of The Honey Connoisseur.
