the beekeeper’s bible

by Amy Azzarito

I’m beginning to think that idiomatic expressions about judging books by their covers must apply to everything but books. (Coralie Bickford-Smith anyone?) is one of the prettiest beekeeping books I’ve come across (and I should know, I have over five of them!), and at 400 pages, it packs a pretty heavy content punch. There’s loads of information for the novice beekeeper on how to set up a hive and what to check for — all the practical details you’ll need to get started. But as a (relatively) seasoned beekeeper, I was most excited about the added content — there’s an extensive history of beekeeping section, a food and drink section, a domestic uses for bee products section AND a craft section. I’ve always wanted to host a honey-themed party around the honey harvest, so I was totally inspired by the recipe section. Um, Honey Mint Julep? Sold!  — Amy A.
