Mounds of Spices

The spices housed in your kitchen cabinet have ancient roots and are infused with centuries of varied uses—from culinary to medicinal. In this six-week course, clinical herbalist Kelly McCarthy teaches students about contemporary and historic uses of herbs with Middle Eastern roots including turmeric, cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, and clove. The class takes an in-depth look at which medicinal components are at play, and creates concoctions to take home for use in the kitchen or medicine cabinet. This course is designed for anyone with an interest in cooking, gardening, or herbalism and will engage beginners as well as seasoned plant lovers.

Six week class cost: $250; Members, $225.
Advance online registration required.

POSTPONED: This series is being moved to new dates: 11/7 - 12/19.
