The AHTS and Albo are so very proud of these stellar students who are the FIRST eighteen people to complete the Introductory Course to the Sensory Analysis of Honey here in the USA. Students came from Canada, Australia, Dominican Republic, California, Colorado, North Carolina, Maryland, Pennsylvania, Illinois, New York, Oregon, Florida, and Massachusetts to participate and will return home with a new understanding of how complex and fascinating honey is and now know the methods to taste and evaluate honey. Most of all they each have received a certificate of completion that is recognized by the Italian Register of Experts in the Sensory Analysis of Honey. We thank the President of the Italian Register, Gian Luigi Marcazzan for traveling from Italy to lead the course and sharing his knowledge and experience with us. Congratulation students! Bee proud and continue to practice your new skills.
Special thanks to our presenters: Ashley Bryant: Cheese educator and Andrew Tipler: Mead educator and judge.
