TRAVELING THE SPICE ROUTE
What an amazing role spices have played in history, romance, politics, religion,
medicine, war and of course cooking. Spices take you on a culinary journey
around the world without ever leaving your kitchen. The earliest evidence of
spices used by man was over 50,000 B.C., imagine what we use in our modern
kitchen’s today were being used in food prep or preservation over 50,000 years
ago! By the close of class, you will never use that pinch of pepper or sprinkle of
cinnamon with the same mindset or walk down the spice aisle without conjuring
up visions of exotic tastes from faraway places. In this class we will explore the
flavors of different ethnic cuisines by creating a variety of hand mixed spice
blends using a pestle and mortar, discuss whole, ground, smoked and toasted
spices plus storage. Join Le Chat Gourmet as we travel back through time
discovering the history of spices while learning to use spice blends that will
take your food from ordinary to extraordinary!
