Top 5 Honey Recipe Books


Our Most Recommended Honey Recipe Books

There are a TON of great honey books out there.  By far my favorites are the honey recipe books!  Being a bit of a foodie, I love trying new recipes and honey recipe books give me a great opportunity to do just that.  If you didn’t already need a reason to try these books: honey is a great cooking or baking ingredient and a great way to reduce the amount of refined sugar your family eats.

Alright, lets get straight to the list!  These are the top 5 honey recipe books available today in my humble opinion.  They are ranked from 1-5 but you really can’t go wrong with any of them and its only my opinion so I encourage you to come to your own conclusions.

Top Choice:  Joy with Honey

Review: This is one of the best honey recipe books on the market.  It also happens to be my favorite!  It’s got more recipes than just about any other honey specific recipe book I’ve come across.  The recipes are also very well thought out and the directions are very well explained meaning that the end result is exactly as you expect.


Second: A Connoisseur’s Guide

Review: Ok, if you’re lucky enough to own this book you shouldn’t give it up.  If you don’t have a copy, find one!  Its got great recipes not seen anywhere else and utilizes some awesome varietal honey.  If you’ve used varietal honey in your cooking then you know that if used properly, they can completely change the taste of your dish.


Third: Covered In Honey

Review: The author does a terrific job of including some great history on honey and honey bees and some great information on food and wine pairings.  This really kicks up the level of honey recipes to a truly gourmet level.  Its got some unusual recipes and some unique methods of preparation.  Foodies, this is your book!


Fourth:  From Flower to Table

Review: This book is interesting because its written by two authors neither of whom are cooks or “honey insiders.”  Stephanie Rosenbaum is a writer and Caroline Kopp is a photographer.  This duo combines to make a very insightful recipe book which also includes some recipes for non-food items like candles, lip balms and other crafts made from bee products.


Fifth: Honey: 75 Delicious Recipes

Review: I like this honey recipe book because it includes a lot of great recipes that show the awesome ways to use honey as a topical treatment for your body.  Don’t get me wrong there are some good food recipes but this book’s strength is are its topical recipes. It shows how versatile honey and its by-products can “bee.”
