Spices that should be on your shopping list for more flavor and better health

About this Event

What you will learn…Do you know there are over 600 different varieties of pepper? How do you choose? Your choice of spices makes a big difference in the final taste of your recipes. You might not think about it, but many spices have great health advantages too. In this class you learn about the flavor and health attributes of several spices. You’ll taste the difference they can make to your foods and take home a few to try…Along with ideas on how they can be incorporated into your everyday cooking. Gurwinder has an extraordinary knowledge on the topic. We love to hear Gurwinder talk about the uses and health benefits of different ingredients and think you will too. A fantastic spread of soft drinks and appetizers will be offered as part of the class fee.
