"Cooking With Honey"
Imagine a full course meal where every item on the menu—cocktail, appetizer, bread, side dishes, entrée, and dessert—has honey as an ingredient. For our October meeting, Master Beekeeper Linda Tillman is doing just that. Please join us for this delectable presentation, where you may pick up a few cooking tips, and some new recipes.
Linda Tillman is an Atlanta Master Beekeeper who had kept bees since 2006. Her blog “Linda’s Bees” (beekeeperlinda.com) chronicles her beekeeping journey from the very beginning and is a great resource for new beekeepers. She is past President of Georgia Beekeepers Association, current secretary of MABA, and runs MABAs hive inspection program.
