Just spotted this link on a FB post from HoneyMaker -- mead listed among the top ten food trends. I tried clicking to read the whole article, must be a glitch of some kind at my end, couldn't pull it up.

Nice to see the mention, but the media still isn't getting the history and background right. Bunratty meade is featured in the photo, which isn't a true mead. Also, mead is desceribed as a "precursor of most other alcohols," produced 7,000 years ago in Northern China.

It appears to be a photo/slideshow article only, clicked through the button at the top of the image to see the other 10 items.

Why do you say that's not a real mead?

Supposedly Bunratty is a grape wine fortified with honey. I gotta say its great that mead is getting recognition from the mainstream media, but it IS annoying how little research the author obviously did. You'd think Forbes would at least do a fact check.

Bad choice of product for the pic, but they got the trend right. Very cool to see artisanal honey at #3. The buzz just keeps growing.

Interesting to read/look at the article, except they didn't include any links to the mortgage broker required for the man in the street to be able to afford truffles to try (truffle oil being relatively cheap compared to the "real thing").....

I wish the honey pic would have prominently displayed some "USA" labels.
