I love the idea of this cookbook; information about honey and bees along with recipes celebrating all the different kinds of honey. There's just one problem--I was really surprised at the number of recipes that didn't use honey! (Though, the Oven Roasted Brussel Sprouts with Garlic are REALLY good!) There's only 84 recipes in the whole book, so for around a dozen or so recipes to not include honey really brought this book down for me. I kind of felt cheated. That being said, most of the recipes that DO include honey look luscious. Definitely try the Wild Salmon with a Smoky Onion Crust! There is a nice selection of photos showing some of the finished dishes, though it would have been nice to have more photos of finished dishes and less of flowers, honeycombs and things like that. Each of the 12 chapters is for one month of the year and features a certain flavor honey, though that doesn't mean you have to use that particular flavor in those recipes. The beginning of each chapter tells you about that particular honey--where it's made and flavor notes including color, smell, taste and aftertaste. There are also a few pages scattered throughout the book telling about the bee colonies. All-in-all, this is a very interesting book with great recipes. I received a copy of this book from Storey Publishing for my honest review. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
