Honey Recipes

From a Welsh Kitchen

 On Sale Now!

In 2003 Jane produced a little book called Traditional Welsh Honey Recipes that proved to be well received and sold out quickly. Inspired by this and by the versatility and potential of honey as a cooking ingredient she is now bringing out a much bigger and fully illustrated book.

Jane ‘s interest in cooking and in bees goes back to her childhood. Then, in rural Wales, her mother's home cooking was the norm and convenience food meant eggs from chickens, milk from goats and honey from bees kept at the bottom of the garden.

All the recipes in the book have the ingredients and quantities precisely and clearly laid out while the cooking instructions are in easy to follow steps. Indeed,  the style makes it obvious that each recipe has been prepared and tried out before hand: this is the work of a practical cook in a real kitchen.

For convenience the recipes are grouped into the following themes:

  • Meat
  • Fish
  • Vegetarian and Salads
  • Desserts
  • Cakes
  • Biscuits
  • Christmas

It is a book for expert and novice alike. Even newcomers, who enter the world of food preparation with some trepidation, should feel confident and want to try these proven recipes.  All will find something new and should be delighted with the results.

All profits from the book go to the International Bee Research Association which is a registered charity (Number: 209222) devoted to spreading information on bees and thereby helping to save, protect and promote these much needed and currently threatened creatures. Bees are the very key to our own food supply not through honey but through the pollination of fruit and vegetable crops essential to our varied diet.
