Whether you are choosing a traditional or vegetarian-themed Thanksgiving, bringing more plant medicine into the menu can be a creative way to, not only entice your guests with exciting flavors, but also to support healthy digestion and balance during what can be a busy time of year, when you may be eating foods that are less compatible with your personal health needs.
This class will be filled with delicious ways to add medicinal herbs and spices to your your menu from apetizers and aperitifs all the way through to dessert. Recipes will be nutritive, gluten free, and vegetarian, but also delicious accompaniments for the non vegetarians at the table. We'll explore herbs including spice bush, sassafras, sumac, nettles and turmeric to name a few.
