Appreciating Spices - Learn a little about the history of spices and how they shaped the world to what it is today, learn about the spice groups and why they are so important when preparing a blend. Learn about the differences between herbs and spices, the harvesting of herbs and spices, why spices have such strong flavours and how to store them properly. You will then create 3 blends on your own whilst tasting them with food samples made freshly on the day. The session ends with a well deserved glass of wine or beer and a helping of chicken curry that will contain one of the spice blends learnt in the class. Spice Masterclass - If you are fairly comfortable using spices in your cooking and are looking for just that little bit more knowledge, then this is the perfect class for you. The spice blends you make are a little more complicated and there will be more spices available. Learn about the science of making spice blends, the right ratios and being bold enough to add your 'touch' to your own magic potion. You will create 3 blends in the class to take home with you and you will sample food with spices talked about in the class. Like the first class, the session will end with a well deserved glass of wine or beer and a sample of something yummy! Both classes are $69.00 each and run for 3 hours.
