Get Creative with Honey

I relish in the comforts of honey every day – sadly, it’s always the same use. In her new book, Taste of Honey, Marie Simmons offers curious cooks a guide to all things honey. From different honey varieties to honey-filled dishes, Taste of Honey indulges all kinds of food lovers. For me, the lamb and dried fig tagine is the first dish to jump out of the book. Experiment with different varieties in this big-flavored stew – prized leatherwood honey from Tasmania, Tuscan chestnut honey, or a charming local wildflower honey. It’s absolutely sensational. The honey-glazed beets with cinnamon, orange and mint is delightful, and the cold Chinese noodles with spicy honey peanut sauce yields the beautiful nuances of sweet and savory together. Marie Simmon’s Taste of Honey is available online and in stores for $25.
