Spices: The Plants That Changed The World

July 7 @ 10:00 am - 12:00 pm

| $25

Ian ‘Herbie’ Hemphill, author of The Spice & Herb Bible 3rd Edition, shares his obsession with spices, nature’s key elements in an exotic world of flavours.

Attendees will learn just what defines spices, their origins, and how they are processed and traded. Herbie will de-mystify their flavours, identify important quality indicators, explain optimum storage conditions, and debunk a few popular myths widely promulgated by the media and unscrupulous spice traders. This session will be peppered with interesting anecdotes Ian has gathered on his many trips to exotic climes in search of spices and their origins.
