This month's presentation:
Honey Defects and Crystallization and Their Causes.
Carla Marina Marchese

Carla Marina Marchese is the founder of the The AHTS (American Honey Tasting Society) and a member of the Italian National Register of Experts in the Sensory Analysis of Honey, where she received her formal training as a honey sensory expert.

A graduate of The School of Visual Arts in NYC, Marina's background in the visual arts primed her for the critical skills required to work in a sensory discipline.

An accomplished apiculturist for 20 years, Marina has also completed the Charles Mraz Apitherapy Course, twice achieving a deep understanding of products of the beehive and the applications to health and healing.

Marina is the co-author, with Kim Flottum, of The Honey Connoisseur which parallels the concept of terroir to single origin honey directly matching floral sources to flavors and conceived the first U.S. honey aroma and flavor wheel.

She was invited to write the honey chapter for Beekeeping for Dummies and is a co-author of Honey for Dummies with Howland Blackiston.
