Course Overview
Flavor occupies the intersection of health and pleasure. Integrating traditional culinary and medical wisdom with the insights of contemporary research, this class is a gastronomic and intellectual journey through the five (or more) basic flavors that define the effects of foods and herbs on the body, mind and palate. This all-new series includes cooking demonstrations, hands-on projects and a unique series of flavor labs that will inspire your work with clients as well as your own cooking and herbal prescribing. This two day workshop will focus on the sweet, sour and bitter elements of flavor.
