Eat Your Medicine: Herbal Foods
Food is Medicine. This is a simple mantra that can inspire how and what you choose to eat. This workshop will introduce participants to creative and delicious ways to incorporate fresh and local medicinal and nourishing herbs into and onto daily foods. As participants learn techniques for making culinary herbal creations, Monarda will weave in herbal wisdom, knowledge and stories. Participants will learn the fundamentals of creating herbal foods balanced for medicine, flavor and nutrition. We will explore the delectable world of curries and pestos, preserved lemons and chocolates! We will discuss many wild and cultivated herbs that can be added as simple ingredients to dishes. This goal for this workshop is for participants to cultivate the confidence to begin to experiment with creating herbal foods unique to their needs and wants.
