Workshop #2 – Bitter: The Lost Flavour
Weds. Apr. 18, 2018

Did you know that bitter foods play a crucial role in human health?

So why has this complex flavour been abandoned in our modern diets?

Let’s go beyond the morning coffee and evening IPA, and rediscover the beauty of bitter foods!

In this workshop, we will explore:

how bitter foods support digestion, vitality and emotional health
common, easy to identify bitter plants you can harvest right about now
delicious and simple ways to use these flavours in the kitchen
We will also sample some of the plants, and my favourite everyday recipes.
