Honey, Let Me Explain + Candle Making Workshop (Demonstration-Style)

  • Tuesday, May 14, 2019
    6:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Collected from the nectar of flowers by hardworking bees, honey has always been lauded as one of nature’s super-foods.

Tonight we are joined by local bee-keeper Catherine Young and owner of The Backyard Honey Company as she and Donna-Marie give you an inside scoop on the benefits of using and cooking with honey.  Like a fine wine, learn about its production, flavour, complexity and consistency as well as the wonder health benefits it can provide.  Donna-Marie will prepare a meal featuring this indispensable pantry staple. After we’ve tasted and learned all there is to know about honey, Catherine will lead you through a candle making workshop using pure beeswax. Everyone will have a chance to make their own beeswax tea light candle to take home.

MENU: Yogurt Cups with Homemade Honey Roasted Granola & Rhubarb Compote, Honey Roasted Carrot Salad with Yogurt and Cinnamon, Lemon and Honey Chicken Skewers, Hazelnut Honey Cake with Poached Berries
