Honey Culinary Instruction Kit now available as a free download

The National Honey Board’s popular Honey Culinary Instruction Kit (introduced in 2009 as a CD-ROM) is now available as a free download at  Culinary educators and other interested foodservice professionals can access the comprehensive information tool on the Foodservice page at, under “Free Culinary CDs.”  After providing basic contact information, visitors simply indicate if they wish to download the kit or receive it as a CD via mail.

The National Honey Board developed the culinary curriculum to share the benefits of honey – as a food, an ingredient and a marketing tool – with student and professional culinarians.  An advanced classroom teaching guide is divided into four learning blocks:  Life of the Hive; Ingredient Functionality; Varietal Honeys; and Tasting Workshop with Culinary Applications.  A PowerPoint presentation emphasizes key learning points, and an appendix offers additional honey information, references and resources.

Culinarians who pass the comprehensive exam (also included in the kit) qualify for 3.5 American Culinary Federation continuing education credits.  Culinary educators, students and foodservice professionals can download their free copy of the Honey Culinary Instruction Kit today at
