This has been on my mind for a long time: to give cooking classes. It seems like the possibilities are endless. So I though, what the %$#@, I'm just gonna do it! My first workshop will cover 'Cooking With Healing Herbs and Spices'. You know why? Because I realised that herbs and spices are hugely undervalued. We use them mainly for improving flavour. Many of us use salt, pepper, garlic and maybe the occasional thyme or oregano. But, did you know that herbs and spices are more than just flavour enhancers? Some of them are outright heroes. Did you know that turmeric is anti-inflammatory? And so is cinnamon? Did you know there are different types of cinnamon? And that the cinnamon in your cupboard most likely is not the one you want? Ever considered adding spices to your drinks? The more I learn about herbs and spices, the more fascinating I find them. Now, I use them in just about every meal and even drink.
Dates and times: September 2016. Exact details to be announced.
