Here I presented: Amy Newsome, “Honey: Recipes from a Beekeeper’s Kitchen”, 2023. The publication date is 13 June 2023, so this book review is amongst the first.
The writer Amy Newsome begins in the INTRODUCTION with these words in quotation.
“Honey has been a fundamental part of human existence for over 10,000 years.”
“From Stone Age wild honey hunts to ancient Egyptian hieroglyphs depicting beekeepers using clay pipe hives.”
In the “Cooking with Honey” of the INTRODUCTION writer Amy Newsome words are quoted here.
The earliest evidence we have of humans and honey is a cave painting in Spain dating to 8000 BCE, depicting a person atop a ladder harvesting honeycomb from a wild nest.
This is a honey cookbook from a Beekeeper. The writer Amy Newsome is telling her life story; and, not simply giving a list of recipes with honey as ingredient.
Beekeeper Karl Frisch won the 1973 NOBEL Prize for “Decoding the Language of the Bee”. The NOBEL prize lecture is recommended reading (title page shown BELOW).
