Sweet Nature invites us to fully enjoy two iconic ingredients from nature’s pantry: honey and maple syrup.

Mette Nielsen’s photographs have illustrated numerous books, newspapers, and magazines. A talented master gardener, she created the edible garden for the Birchwood Cafe in Minneapolis, collaborated on The Birchwood Cafe Cookbook and Minnesota’s Bounty, and coauthored Savory Sweet.
