Honey and Cheeses from Switzerland
The beginnings of beekeeping
All over the world people have gradually developed beekeeping and cooking with honey. This is the case with the Romans who perfected it. The beehives were originally very rudimentary, hollowed out tree trunks, but soon they were made of straw, wood or bark.
But the history of honey cannot be confined to that of the Mediterranean Basin. It is experiencing equally exciting developments in the Aztec civilization, where honey was on the menu from breakfast, in a cocoa drink mixed with honey, chilli and vanilla. Honey corn porridge is a staple food among all Native American people.
