177 ratings | 7708 views
Honeybees make thousands of nectar-collection trips for every ounce of honey humans enjoy -- and we've been enjoying it since before written history was a thing. Anney and Lauren talk to a scientist, a chef, and a mead maker about how bees work, the amazing ways that honey can be used, and what's going on with colony collapse disorder.

This was a fantastic episode. While the purpose may be centered around food, this series proclaims the wonderful culture of Atlanta. It also busts stereotypes right and left about a southern city. When I'm asked here in DC, where's your accent, since I grew up around Atlanta, it reminds me of how badly the south is portrayed elsewhere. Keep up the stellar work.

When I was at Johnson & Wales in Charlotte, NC, the Quad landscaping was overhauled with a bunch of herb plants so we could pick our ingredients for dinner on our way back from class.

I have not! My mom pulled noodles with our Cuisinart when I was little, but I've never done it myself. It's definitely on my list of things to try. /Lauren

Ever try stretching your own noodles? It takes quite a bit of practice but the texture is so much better.

That's so awesome! I would've been making some kickin' ramen & baked chicken if my school'd had that. ^__^;;

My will to live is not strong enough to bring me to cannibalism. It's just not worth it. My friends can eat me.

I was on a Quizbowl trip that went to Atlanta in May. The hotel we stayed in was right beside that building with the bees on the roof. I remember seeing the mural out the hotel window. Small world.

Another quality production from the HSW. I never got why people trash Lauren and the other women who work there, keep up the good work everyone @ HSW.

I Love mead! Greetings from Germany

Us too! Hopefully we'll be able to film a whole episode about the mead-making process once Justin & the rest of the Monks Mead crew get their new meadery set up.
