BuZz into Bendels!

Haagen Dazs 2009

To increase awareness of the plight of the honey bees, Alex Woo and Häagen-Dazs co-hosted an exclusive cocktail event for fashion, food and lifestyle editors at New York City’s luxe Henri Bendel’s department store, which took place on Wednesday, October 21st.  Renowned Chef, David Guas, who's also a bee enthusiast and the star of the Emmy-nominated PBS documentary Chefs A' Field prepared all of the delicious “bee-friendly” hors d’eourves (yummy!) and created his signature basil-lemonhead cocktail.  Of course there was also plenty of ice cream, which is why Häagen-Dazs has been donating money to help figure out why this is happening. At the event, Alex showcased a beautiful jewelry display which launched her newest addition to her Little Seasons collection, the Little Bee pendant.  Guests also had the privilege of viewing the designer’s most popular designs from her icon, fashion and fine jewelry collections. Häagen-Dazs Help the Honey Bees Imagine many of the world's favorite flavors disappearing day by day. At Häagen-Dazs, more than 50 percent of our all-natural ice cream flavors are made with the help of honey bee pollination. The crisis facing honey bees is a crisis facing us all, and it's time to help. For more information about the plight of the honey bee and what you can do to help go to Chefs A' Field: Disappearing Act Imagining a World Without Bees Colony Collapse Disorder (CCD) is a term first coined in 2006 for a phenomenon in which worker bees mysteriously vanish from a beehive. CCD represents a looming crisis for agriculture. Pastry chef David Guas knows how important the little worker bee actually is. He joins beekeeper Dave Hackenberg in a picturesque Pennsylvania apple orchard in full bloom to work with the bees and to discuss how they, and our food supply, might be saved. Henri Bendel One of Manhattan's chicest shopping environments, Henri Bendel is a girls' playground, where Bendel girls go to find the new and the next in accessories, cosmetics, gifts and fashion.  A New York icon, as familiar as the Flatiron building or the Plaza Hotel, Bendel's luxury heritage and eye for the new have made shopping at Henri Bendel a rite of passage for elite young women.  With their signature brown and white striped shopping bags spotted swinging from the arms of stylish young women from around the world visit the store and be tempted with irrestible indulgences at every turn.
