WEEK FOUR: Herbs and the Five Flavors
- Tuesday 23 April 2019
- 6:30PM - 8:30PM
- Penn Museum
Tuesdays, April 2 - May 7, 6:30pm - 8:30pm
In this sensory class, we’ll be delving into the five flavors: sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and pungent. With the frame of food as medicine, we’ll explore how each of these flavors supports our health. We’ll look in-depth at which foods and medicinal herbs have which flavors, and what we can learn about their medicinal and healing properties simply through their taste. Blending modern science and folk wisdom, this class will open up a whole new world when it comes to eating. There will be lots of snacks at each class so we can experience each flavor, as well as recipes to take home.
Sweet - We’ll take the concept of sweet beyond sugar and fruit and look at deeply nourishing sweet foods like yams and carrots, and how the sweet flavor relates to our feelings of safety and satiety and how you can use nourishing foods to satisfy your sweet tooth.
Six week class cost: $250; Members, $200. Weekly rate: $50 per class.
