Weird Spices

6ff74e82 seeable

Taught by j soma

Soma was born in the South, is what someone from the North would say. He cooks for fun, codes for hire, and has more hobbies than can dance on the head of a pin. His work has been featured everywhere from Gawker to The New York Times.

Yes, salt and pepper are pretty cool, but there's something to be said for going on a little adventure sometimes.

There are seeds that smell like beef jerky, fruit husks that numb your lips and spices with Facebook pages that claim they smell like rotting feet. You'll sample powders that might as well be ground-up Sour Patch Kids and unravel the smoke and mirrors surrounding the unknown secrets of ground cinnamon.

Basically we're eating a lot of weird things. Some will be your secret culinary weapons, some should be classified as biological weapons. Culinary history and scientific background will be featured to enhance your sensory experience.
