What you'll learn in this more cooking techniques class:

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, their origins and health benefits, distinguish between their whole and ground forms, and discuss proper usage and storage techniques. I’ll provide recipes for some notable spice blends and suggested usage for an array of spices while demonstrating  an irresistible spiced popcorn to serve with a kicked up cocktail. You’ll become familiar with the spices you have. 

For the hands-on portion of this class, I will walk you through how to create your own freshly ground spice blend with the spices you already have on hand. You’ll discover and appreciate the spices in your cupboard and be inspired to use them daily. Cheers!

Spices: A Primer
Reviewed by Anonymous on 6/18/2020
The class was fun. The instructor was knowledgeable and willing to entertain questions. Would love for her to teach a class on infusing oils with spices and/or a more advance class on which spices mix well and why.
