July 22 - 10:00 am - 12:00 pm
This is the first in a series of three workshops discussing different methods and recipes for making traditional foods. We will demystify what traditional foods are and why you need to know about them. Weaved into all three courses will be discussion around the concept of food as medicine for both people and the planet, as well as how the intention behind what we create in the kitchen has a biological effect on our body
This first course is all about ways we can incorporate herbal medicine in our daily cooking. Students will harvest fresh herbs on the farm and create a few simple and delicious dishes while learning about the medicinal value of plants used in the recipe.
Class fee: $65
