Whether you want to keep your own bees or just enjoy the considerable health benefits of honey, you’ll love all that C. Marina Marchese shares about her life as a beekeeper. Tired of the daily grind, she decided to follow her passion. Today she’s the dedicated beekeeper and owner of Red Bee® Honey, a popular brand of artisanal honey and honey-related products. With Honeybee, she reveals all she knows about bees: what it’s like inside the hive; the role of the queen, workers, and drones; honey’s culinary pleasures; its healing properties; how to read a honey label; 75 different varietals; and more. This is a joy to read and useful, too; it comes with recipes, including a Honey Almond Biscotti and a simple honey lip balm. B/w illustrations.

This is one of the best beekeeping books I have read. Ms. Marchese thoroughly covers all the information pertinent to the subject and does it in an organized and orderly fashion. However, one never feels like one is reading a textbook. It is more like a first-hand story from a friend. I would definitely recommend this book.
