From our organizers:
Do you have spice jars in your pantry you’ve never touched? Are you curious about all of the colorful mounds of seeds and powders at spice markets but hesitant to try them?
In this class, we’ll discuss a variety of spices and their origins and health benefits, distinguish between their whole and ground form, and discuss proper usage and storage techniques. We’ll create an Anti-Inflammatory Butternut Squash and Lentil Stew with freshly ground Ras el Hanout, the legendary Moroccan spice blend.
You will sample a variety of other spice blends and distinguish between their components. For the hands-on portion of this class, you will create your own freshly ground spice blend of your choice to jar and take home with you. You’ll leave with heightened taste buds and inspiration for cooking with spices you already have on hand!
