Red Bee Honey is hosting a Holiday Boutique on 12/21 and 12/22 from 11-4 pm on both days at the Red Bee Cottage in Weston.  While this is a perfect time for the gift procrastinator (you know who you are), it’s also a great time to get some stocking stuffers or just stock up on some great local goods.

The Honey Connoisseur Marina MarcheseYes, you can expect Red Bee Honey there (with a free tasting too!), but there are tons more to purchase, too.  There will be handmade soaps, beeswax candles, lip balms, skin care products, and you can even put together your own gift boxes.  And, for the sweetest gift of all, you could buy Marina’s books (Honeybee:  Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper and The Honey Connoisseur) and she’ll even sign them.

Red Bee Honey Offers Tastings and Brings the Holiday Cheer with Their Holiday Boutique

30 Nov

Bzzzy this weekend?  How about some holiday fun, sweetened up with locally produced Red Bee Honey?  If you’re not familiar with Red Bee Honey, then let us share just a little bit o’ information.  Red Bee Honey is run by Marina Marchese, an expert and pioneer in all things honey.  First off, she studied honey tasting in Montalcino, Italy.  Did you know that you could study honey tasting?  Awesome!  In fact, she discovered that different variables such as pollen, climate, and soil can create differences in taste.  Don’t believe us?  Check out TheNibble.com for varieties of honey, along with their colors and tasting notes.

Red Bee Artisanal Honey is a single-origin honey, meaning that it’s not collected from different places across the country or world.  It’s local, it’s pure, and it’s un-putzed-around-with.  Marina Marchese has also written a book about her experience called Honeybee: Lessons from an Accidental Beekeeper, she is founder of The American Honey Tasting Society, and her apiology (we had to look that word up) knowledge has been sought after by Eataly, The Food Network, Yahoo!, The Chew, and more.  You’ll find the sweet stuff at Red Bee Cottage, local markets, or at restaurants such as Terrain (remember when we ate awesome scallops with English peas, Terrain bacon, horseradish, and locally awesome Red Bee Honey?)

So, it’s time to meet Marina, taste some Red Bee Honey, and bring some goodies home for yourself, your friends, and anybody else you’d like to woo.
