Let Food Be Thy Medicine

Let Food Be Thy Medicine

About this Workshop

This workshop explores how to bring the healing effect of herbs into your daily cuisine. Certain herbs are used in the kitchen on a regular basis and although these herbs are used for flavour, they also have a medicinal component. Others are mostly overlooked as a food even though there is great potential for incorporating them into your regular meal plan. When a family member is sick, we can tweak our recipes to make them more conducive to healing. We can prepare food according to the seasons to stay balanced and healthy in all different types of climate and weather. Take home samples of healthy condiments that we will create together.

Remember to bring a 250 ml – 350 ml wide mouthed jar with lid, a mug, and weather appropriate attire for the session.
