Honey tasting > Cured meats, olive oil, wine and cheese tastings… combined?
Yep, I said it. Last weeks class on honey was a revelation for me. The nomadic beekeeper from Mieile Thun came in with 8 single origin honeys that just about blew my mind. Think flavors like eucalyptus, lime tree, ivy, heather, dandelion, fir tree and rhododendron… don’t worry, I didn’t know what last one was, either.
But hey, if you come visit me NYC you might just find out…

Who needs a turkey when you can have 15 cuts of cured meat before lunch time? Happy Thanksgiving!

Arrivederci Alto Adigo, ciao Bra (sigh)! Amazing week and potential future place of residence. Highlights included, and in no particular order: cheese making, a ridiculous picnic, beautiful views, gondolas, rain, manure machines, cow milking (!!!), cows in general, austrian apple pickers, wine tasting, meat, so much meat, deer, goulash, pretzels, bread, knudels, cabbage salads, alpine hats, mountain huts, cheese, singing austrian children, figs the size of my face, too much strudel (not possible), milk tasting, fun benches, funny pins, speck, bitters, delicious drinks, ridiculous mounds of bruschetta, beautiful vineyards, hammock time, obvious physical alterations and although not pictured, some incredibly competitive rounds of ping pong. (Full disclosure, I had no idea I was uploading so many pictures… my bad)
