Healing Broths: Extracting Culinary and Medicinal Goodness from Bones, Herbs and Vegetables
What is old is new again: modern research has confirmed that broth helps prevent and mitigate certain diseases. These nourishing liquids are also some of the most flavorful and versatile staples you can have in the kitchen. In this demonstration class you will learn about the history of vegetable and various bone broths, techniques for maximum flavor and nutrient extraction, and the almost infinite uses of broths in your cooking.
The workshop will conclude with a broth and “add-in” condiment tasting.
This workshop is offered on a sliding scale of $10-$40 per person. Attendance is free for active Ceres volunteers.
