Nestled within the splendor of the Chouf mountains, there lies a sweet and sticky surprise.Here, customers can sample and purchase the best quality honey and assorted products from Lebanon and from around the world.Needing a change from office life five years ago, Marc grew increasingly fascinated with bees.Learning with the help of several experienced beekeepers, including a mentor in France, Marc and his partners started off with only 90 beehives, though now have many times that.However, Marc believes his inexperience also brought a fresh eye to his approach.To produce substandard honey would be sacrilegious to Marc.Each hive contains around 20,000 bees.Marc pulls out the wooden plates from inside the hive, on which the bees make the honeycomb.Marc checks several different hives, and the number of bees in the air seems to increase at each one. The honey-making of L'Atelier du Miel is a sweet side to the artisanal food culture that is gaining popularity in Lebanon.
