National Honey Board releases '09 culinary education kit

An updated and enhanced version of the Honey Culinary Education Kit is now available from the National Honey Board. The Honey Board created the education module to familiarize both student and professional culinarians with the value and benefits of honey--as a food, an ingredient and a marketing tool. In CD-ROM/DVD format, the kit offers a professional teaching guide for secondary culinary programs with:
  • Four learning blocks--Life of the Hive, Varietal Honeys, Ingredient Functionality;
  • Tasting Workshop and Culinary Applications;
  • Appendix of honey resource documents;
  • Introductory Powerpoint presentation; and
  • Foodservice recipe collection.
Students completing the module and passing its comprehensive exam qualify for 3.5 ACF continuing education hours (CEH). To receive a copy of the new Honey Culinary Education Kit, call the National Honey Board hot line at (800) 255-0288, or fill out the online order form here.
