Description - Honey by Lucy M. Long

Sticky, sweet and a natural substance that can be consumed without any human processing, honey is now thought of mostly as a sweetener. In its long history around the world, however, it has been much more. Many cultures have treated it as a staple food, as well as tonic, medicine and preservative.

It also has played a role in religious rituals, as a sacred food from the gods. In this book Lucy M. Long explores honey's fascinating history, tracing its use and meanings through numerous cultures world-wide. Focusing on its role as food and drink, this book includes recipes and discussions of its place in global cuisines.
