I'm beekeeper, pastry chef and passionate wine expert (WSET Level 2). For one year I was developing healthy recipes for a TV show. I organise wine and dinner tastings and cooking classes at different places. And now finally I have my own "sweet bar" where I host events like honey tastings and cooking classes.

I highly recommend this very unique experience. I tried many kinds of honey, and got a thorough explanation of the process and the different stories behind each of the kinds of honey-- what part of the country they are from, some history, etc. It was quite well-explained, with pictures of the different flowers and a map of Bulgaria, and was fascinating. Irina was patient, very easy to spend time with, and extremely generous with sharing a few other things she had on hand to snack on with the tasting.

This was a fun experience. As with the other reviews, Irina opened me to a whole new deliciously sweet, honey world. Everything was delightful.

Great experience! I never imagined there was so much to learn about honey! This experience really made me look at honey industry in a different way and appreciate the honey I eat every day a lot more!

Irina was a great expert of Bulgarian honey. She gave us lots of different kinds of honey to taste. We also tried very interesting cheeses and wine which tasted amazing. In all, we had the feeling of a very special kind of tasting which we had never heard of before and we would definitely recommend the event to our friends. Thank you and see you soon at your nice art gallery coffee shop!

I was impressed with Irina's passion, knowledge and enthusiasm for honey, and bee-keeping. The experience and tasting process she recommended for us was simple and effective. Being that she is also a commercial baker, she sold us some of her vegan-friendly treats, and shared with us her home-made non-alcoholic and alcoholic wine, and vegan/non-vegan cheeses! Overall, in terms of taste, textured, flavors and learning, it was a fascinating experience. My only recommendation is that is begins 1 hour earlier at 6:30pm.
