Celebrate May With Honey!Vibrant music, exciting chatter and incredible food are all characteristics of a great party. The month of May is full of celebrations with Mother’s Day, Memorial Day and graduation, just to name a few.
The National Honey Board and event planner and CEO of Zikei Event Design, Coral Bosch, have developed mini indulgences with honey that are sure to be a hit at your next party.
Honey highlights the overall flavor of all these delectable combinations, going beyond its role as a natural sweetener. It plays a key role in enhancing simple snacks like the Caramelized Nuts with Chile Piquín and even seafood like the Mini Tostadas with Honey-Soy Marinated Tuna. “It’s fascinating how well honey can complement such a wide variety of ingredients; each recipe is so different, but they all share the distinct flavor and special touch of honey,” says Coral.
Kick off your May celebrations by treating your loved ones and guests to these mouthwatering bites that will take your party to the next level. You can even make a family activity out of putting each recipe together… but you may want to make a few batches of each since they’re sure to go fast!
