herbsMonday 1:00 – 3:00 p.m.

Discover the astounding medicinal powers and culinary flavour blasts of herbs and spices. Did you know that almost 30% of medicine is derived from plants? Aside from their delectable taste contributions to your meals, herbs and spices can be catalysts for a healthier life. They are memory boosting, antimicrobial, heart friendly, and can help with digestion, detoxification, and disease prevention. Some even have cancer-prevention properties! Each class, you will learn about specific herbs and spices, make one in-class recipe and some brews or infusions, and enjoy tastings. Those who cannot stay for the full two hours are encouraged to bring along containers to take home their tasting items. Let’s spread the health, all in good taste! A course fee of $30 for supplies per participant is payable to the instructor at the first class.
