Cooking with Herbs and Spices
Taught by Nancy Campbell
Nancy combines her training in nutrition and integrative health with her decade of professional culinary experience in her business Radiant Health NYC. She knows what it's like to not have the time or patience to spend hours in the kitchen and still want amazing food every night. With a low budget and a vegetarian tendency, she took her years of prepping in professional kitchens into her own. She supports her clients to refine their diets, build culinary skills and reinvent their pantries so they can feel amazing in their skin and confident in the kitchen!
Is your food sadly bland or too salty?
Are you always grappling with how and when to use those spice jars in your cabinet?
Intimidated by exotic spices or fresh herbs?
We've got you covered! This class will awaken your palette and inform how you cook with herbs and spices. You will be able to broaden your cultural cuisine repertoire and be better able to use your senses to identify "what it needs" when you cook. We will cover how to combine spices and herbs and achieve balance in a dish including the crucial role of salt. You will know how to work with fresh versus dried herbs as well as how to freshly grind or grate spices. The beauty of infusions and the use of essence will also be covered.
The structure of the class will blend lecture, hands-on "play", tasting, and demonstration.
