Honey Baking Summit Brings Buzzworthy Collaboration to JWU

Now in its 6th year hosted at JWU Providence’s College of Culinary Arts, the Honey Baking Summit brought together bakers from all over the US to learn about and bake with honey. Sponsored by the National Honey Board, the event included breakout sessions that delved into consumer trends in honey, honey history — and even an apiary tour.

Attendees included James Beard Foundation 2018 Changemaker April Anderson of Good Cakes & Bakes, Emily Spurlin of Bad Hunter, and Sofra’s Maura Kilpatrick, among others. All were eager to swap ideas and get inspired.
