Oregon Honey Festival

November 15, 2014

I am thrilled to be a presenter at the First Annual Oregon Honey Festival celebrating Bees, Honey, and Almonds on Saturday November 15 at the Ashland Springs Hotel in Ashland, Oregon.

I came to the world of honey as a cook, not as a beekeeper, but along the way I became smitten with the bees. Today we have two thriving hives in our little backyard in Eugene, OR. Bees and their honey are now my life. While researching my book, “Taste of Honey” I tasted over 100 different varieties of honey from around the world. I will share these experiences and my passion for honey and honey bees as I lead honey tastings, food pairings and sign copies of my book during the festival. I look forward to greeting you. These and many more activities are on the website
