The Bees Knees

I was lucky enough to go to the Four Season’s hotel as my friend Chef Robert hosted an evening about bee awareness. One wonders what is the big deal about these pesky bees but there is a lot. I didn’t realize that we need bees to pollinate veggies to make the food grow. I also learned that they transport bees from all over the world to pollinate full crops. In California every Valentines day a large % of the US almonds trees are pollinated with bees from all over the United States.

We have been having full colony’s of bees die because they get each other sick.They are also doing artificial insemination of bees as well. So what does this all have to do with Rober at the Four Seasons. Well he has been stung – with the love of bees and the beauty of honey. He keeps bee hives on the terrace of the hotel and shares it with his guests and uses it for his cooking.

That is my story for now and I am sticking to it.
