We love to tailor the class to you! So, during our introduction, we will get a sense of what you know and what you want to know about herbs and cooking. And that will shape this culinary experience.
We will dive into the world of culinary herbs and spices in this novel Portland food tour! Since Portland is such a diverse foodie haven, let’s start with a visit to a local green grocer to see what is in season and looks enticing. We will talk about what it takes to maintain a bountiful selection of fresh food and herbs, year-round.
Then we will walk a block to a well-appointed work space where we will transform market goodies into culinary delights. Treats may include herbal vinegars, oils, honeys and spice mixtures. Our time will be split between discussion and hands on. We will learn how herbs and spices make different cuisines truly distinctive, as well as why so many people from cultures around the world regard their food as their best medicine.
