Local honey keeps our chocolate buzzing!

It’s time for another taste education workshop with our good friends at Slow Food Vermont.  This Saturday from 12pm-4pm at our Factory Store on Pine St, honey is the star.  We will have Bill Mares, beekeeper extraordinaire, in attendance to talk about how honey is collected, the variety and sources of honey including the special characteristics of Vermont honey and the Vermont Beekeepers Association’s work with over 1,200 local beekeepers to sustain Vermont’s honey industry.

Slow Food Vermont will offer a honey tasting that focuses on the “taste of place.” The tasting will inform participants how to taste and evaluate different varieties of honey and include a discussion about how the local landscape gives Vermont’s honey a complex and unique flavor.  Attendees will sample honey in its many forms including liquid, comb, creamed, and whipped, and a chance to sample pollen, another product of the hive.

You might wonder:  where is the chocolate?  Not to worry, we’ll be sampling chocolates and caramels made with Vermont honey, featuring a Dark Chocolate Honey Caramel, an Organic Honey Fig Truffle and the Five Star Caramel Bar

Stop by, we’d love to see you and share our passion for local ingredients, taste of place and amazing chocolate!  Saturday January 28th from 12-4pm at the LCC Factory Store, 750 Pine Street in Burlington.

Oh, we should also mention, all three LCC retail stores—750  Pine Street and 64 Church Street in Burlington and on Route 100 in Waterbury— will be offering sweet deals on chocolate until January 29th!
