Real Raw Honey pure goodness by bees

The world is plentiful with honey, but only the humble bee can produce it.

Honey is viscous food made by mother natures best loved insect the bee. For those who are unaware of honey it is sugary secretions of plants (nectar). Bees store the nectar in wax structures called honeycombs producing honey. There is a large variety of different types of honey which is produced by bees as it depends which plants they gather the nectar from and the environment they live.

MARLENKA honey cakes which are BEElicious

MARLENKA are sellers of layered cakes which all contain honey.

On a courtesy basis I was gifted a MARLENKA honey cake with walnuts to enjoy at home.

MARLENKA

Back in 1704 Armenian Georgius Deodatus Damascenus founded the first Czech coffee lounge in Prague, named The Golden Snake. Nearly three hundred years later, in 1995, the Armenian Gevorg Avetisyan came to the Czech Republic to settle there with his family. He discovered an old family recipe of the Honey Miracle, which was as a traditional Armenian family recipe of his favourite layered honey cake. Initially, the cakes were baked just for his friends, but later he has been able to offer them to the local coffee shops and confectioners where the honey delicacy quickly gained the great popularity. The fragrant, sweet and soft cake was named after his mother and daughter Marlenka.

Carn’s Kulfi creamy delight

I love ice cream but surprisingly I have never had Kulfi’s before so when I was gifted an assorted box of Carn’s Kulfi I just had to try and wow I was surprised by the texture and taste. So creamy a real delight.

Carn’s Kulfi

Nasser Khan set up Carn’s Kulfi in 2002 and since then has been selling handmade Kulfi’s which are all made from using an old closely guarded family recipe which has been passed down from generation to generation.

What makes Kulfi’s different to ice cream though? The main difference between ice cream and Kulfi is the texture, and taste. Kulfi is creamier than ice cream as it is usually made by reducing the volume of full cream milk nearly one third to what was its original volume.

Forget wine made from grapes indulge in a glass of Loxwood Meadworks Pure Mead which is made from 100% honey.

Danny the founder of Loxwood Meadworks sold Mead for The Loxwood Joust which is a medieval festival which he runs. During his festivals he noticed how much people loved it, and wondered why no one seems to drink Mead anymore?So with that he bought it back but in a modern way to sell.

Starting from scratch he experimented, tasted, and got designing to create a signature Pure Mead which you see today.

It’s fermented dry, and then back-sweetened with honey, to give the most natural flavour and a delicate sweetness.
