Here’s your chance to be an extreme locavore with this Slow Food San Francisco guided tasting of local neighborhood San Francisco honeys on Sunday August 29th. Apiarist Robert MacKimmie of City Bees will guide the group through a tasting of at least six micro-climate honeys from several neighborhoods, such as Potrero Hill, Dolores Park, the Castro, and more. You will also be able to learn about urban beekeeping and what gives honeys their distinct taste. There will also be a “cooking with honey” demonstration (including honey bread and some baked summer fruit desserts) at 1pm in the Cob Brick oven by Slow Food SF’s Naomi Friedman and Xanthie Drankus; the honey tasting is at 3pm.
