Global Spirit and Spice PDF  | Print |  E-mail

Curiosity about other cultures is one of the joys of being human.  As the world opens up and we feel more and more inhabitants of the earth rather than one particular country, we can freely choose the best of all cultures.  The recipes we use are inspired by the best healing traditions around the world. 

 

Nevertheless, remaining conscious of food miles, we may not want to obtain the bulk of our foods from ethnic stores, with the exception of spices.  These little bundles of concentrated energy not only make our meals taste better but also contribute to the balance and digestibility of our foods.  Therefore, learning how to use spices correctly is one of the fundamental requirements of becoming a good cook  and we use the ancient Ayurvedic knowledge as our main guide and inspiration.   In our classes and recipes, we provide a lot of guidance but you are always free to adjust the amounts according to your taste and constitution.
