Bee Inspired by My Life in Food

By: Sara Levine

Farming and beekeeping…not typical career paths for city dwellers. On tonight’s episode of My Life in Food, you’ll meet Annie Novak and Andrew Coté, two urbanites who prove that both can be done on the rooftops of New York City.

Annie grows 30 types of organic produce on a 6,000 square foot rooftop farm in Brooklyn. Andrew tends to over 100 beehives throughout the city and sells his "NYC Honey" at the Union Square Greenmarket, where he's better-known as the "Honey Man" or the "Bee Guy." Visit him there on Wednesdays if you're in town.

Andrew's best-selling urban honey has a unique flavor, he says, thanks to the many types of nectar his bees collect from all of the different trees in the city. If you can hold yourself back from eating it (or your own favorite honey) straight from the jar, check out our hunger-inducing  honey gallery, full of ways to use the sweet stuff in savory dishes as well as desserts.

Tune in tonight at 9:30pm/8:30c for a glimpse into their extraordinary lives in food.
