Spice of life
BRATTLEBORO- The Secret Life of Spices with Ian Diamondstone, of New Forest, will be presenting two classes on spices. The Secret Life of Spices takes place on Monday, November 19, from 5:30 to 7 pm.
Learn everything you always wanted to know about five common, yet complex spices: turmeric, cardamom, allspice, ginger, and black pepper. Diamondstone will share his wealth of knowledge about the history, world culture and lore as participants taste their way through these five spices. The class will sample the flavors and be inspired to create new recipes for the upcoming holidays.
Class will be a blend of presentation, sampling, concocting, discussion, and sharing. Come to one or both, however, space is limited. The cost is $30 per class or $55 for both classes. The follow-up class will be on Monday, December 17. Participants will take on tonics, cures, mixers, and elixirs with Diamondstone.
