owner Jodie Goldsworthy, a
fourth generation beekeeper,
can add author to her long
list of achievements.
She has just penned her first book,
Cooking, Tasting, Living Honey, which
features everything you would ever want to
know about honey.
What's different about this book is
she provides an insight into her family's
involvement as beekeepers since the 1880s.
Jodie reveals their intricate knowledge and
passion for honey, the bees that harvest the
many and varied nectars, and their love of
the Australian bush, which has been passed
down through four generations.
She shares their stories with love and
pride, as well as providing a wealth of
knowledge about Australian honey and
how to use it in our kitchens.
The book features a collection of recipes,
great photographs, tasting notes and life
journeys showcasing honey in a unique way.
It helps readers understand the
extraordinary work of bees and their vital
task of pollinating plants and sustaining life.
The full colour book has been written
following hundreds of requests for such a
publication from visitors to the Beechworth
Honey Experience, created by Jodie,
husband Steven, and their team.
Focused on providing educational
material about honey and bees, it attracts
more than 80,000 visitors a year.
Jodie is motivated by her quest to bring
a more sustainable future to Australian
beekeepers and improve and preserve the
unique art of beekeeping. The book, priced
at $39.95, is available at selected outlets
including Beechworth Honey Experience,
Readings Bookstores, Books for Cooks
and at www.beechworthhoney.com.au
l Jodie and Steven Goldsworthy opened the Beechworth
