For centuries, honey was the world's major sweetener. Ever since the caveman stole his first sweet taste, honey has formed part of mankind's cultural traditions. In past civilizations, honey was offered to the gods, used to pay taxes and came to be used in special dishes, many of which are still enjoyed today.

Even though they no longer describe honey as "dew, distilled from the stars and the rainbow", modern cooks still have a high regard for ;honey because of the rich, delicate flavour it adds to our cooking and baking.
