Imagining a World Without Bees. Chef David Guas: Bayou Bakery -Arlington, Virginia 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. Recipes: Hand Apple Pie with Honeybee Vanilla Ice Cream; Zucchini Cake with Local Honey Glaze.
