Made from nectar concentrated down to a sweet stickiness by tens of thousands of bees working together in the hive, honey can be found all over the world.

Caribbean jerk, Spanish tapas, French sauces, British biscuits and Turkish cakes all gleam with the sweet stuff. It can take no more than a spoonful of honey to bring its deep flavour to a dish. As a marinade it enhances meat and poultry, and works particularly well with nuts and fruits, cream and cheese, and herbs and spices.
