Original Title

Le Miel L'art des abeilles, l'or de la ruche

An enthralling book on honey and bees - you'll be bitten by the bug!

Pictured in cave paintings discovered in Spain, South Africa and India, honey is one of humanity's most ancient foods. An undisputed symbol of sweetness, prosperity and abundance, this nectar is the result of Herculean labour carried out by bees in a striking spirit of cooperation and with remarkable precision.

In this magnificently illustrated book, we discover the history of bees, their morphology, their mysterious language, the structure of their colonies, their life cycles, and how work is organized in the hive. The authors present not only the different stages in the production of honey and the many secrets of the hive's other treasures, but also the diversity of our floral heritage and the particular tastes of the various types of honey that result. Lastly, gourmet recipes will prompt you to become more familiar with using honey in cooking.
