Class Experience

Aside from learning that they can make any condiment they choose (given time and ingredients) and how to make three of them, students learn the difference between an herb and a spice, discover where in the world most spices grow, understand the chemical reaction of mustard seeds with water, identify categories of condiments, hear about several of the weirdest condiments from around the world, and find out how to clean a coffee grinder before and after grinding spices. 
We often hear great cooks say, "My grandmother taught me to make..." It is a mentorship skill. Through it, we learn science, proportions, weight conversion, and nutrition. But we also learn about global culture, tradition, and history. I am delighted to share what I know with young people and to learn from them.
Apart from gathering supplies ahead of time, all work is completed in class.
