We are pleased to share news about our Grand Geneva Bees. We harvested over 100lbs of honey from our new on-site beehives. This sweet surprise will be featured in various offerings throughout the resort and restaurants including new hotel guest amenities and paired alongside tea offerings. Executive Chef Nelly Buleje plans to use the new harvest in fall and winter menus including Ristorante Brissago's Sweet Basil Vinaigrette, Geneva ChopHouse's popular Umami Salmon Collars dish featured in the restaurant's famous Sparkling Sunday Brunch and drizzled in the granola bowl in Grand Cafe. Raw honey and honey sticks are also available for purchase in Grand Central. Stop by and pick up a jar! Craving more bee knowledge? BEE-lieve all of these facts about bees.
