Wild honey tasting and discussion in cooperation with the Indonesian Forest Honey Network (JMHI / Jaringan Madu Hutan Indonesia).
Slow Food Bali was proud to work with JHMI for this event. Their organization’s efforts to encourage wild honey production in Indonesia — for health & nutrition, for local community development, for preservation of the forest habitats, etc etc — are very much part of Slow Food Bali’s vision for food in Indonesia.
This event included a tasting of five different types of wild honeys, from Sumatra, Kalimantan, Sumbawa, etc. The cultural, environmental, and health & nutritional dimensions of honey in Indonesia will be presented by the Forest Honey Network. Special honey tinged Welcome Cocktails, light hors d’oeuvres were enjoyed by over 60 people.
The clear winner was the forest honey from Flores. A huge hit!
