To bee or not to bee. Exploring The Fairmont Royal York's rooftop apiary with Executive Sous Chef Andrew Court.
In 2008, The Royal York placed 3 hives on their 14th-floor rooftop garden. They were named The Honey Moon Suite, The Royal Sweet & the V.I.Bee Suite. The hotel’s apiary established itself as the first rooftop apiary found at any hotel in the world. The honey provides Fairmont chefs with local & sustainable honey for use in the hotel's cuisine.Three more hives, the Bee & Bee Suite, Stayin-a-Hive Suite & Comb Suite Comb were then added in 2009.
Talk about no-footprint food: the rooftop garden at Vancouver's @Fairmont Waterfront has an apiary with 500,000 bees that produce the golden nectar for the hotel's drinks and truffles. #fairmonthotels #bees #honey
