The comment advising to refrain from cooking with honey is absolute nonsense and ignorant.

dear chef, you should not use honey in cooking. when you heat honey, it changes composition and when it goes into the body, it becomes 'ama', according to Ayurveda. Ama means poison. The body is not able to digest it and it accumulates in the body. Kindly refrain from using honey in recipes where you have to heat it and please educate others because so many people follow your cooking. Many thanks Sir.
