TERRITORY TASTE MASTERCLASS – Spice Blending Workshop

| $100

TERRITORY TASTE MASTERCLASS

Spice Blending Workshops

with Ian “Herbie” Hemphill

Spice blending is an art as much as a science, and every spice blender will have his/her own approach to making a blend. The ultimate requirements may vary considerably depending upon for whom the blend is being made. A multinational food company wanting a spice blend to use in fast food outlets will be concerned about cost, a flavour profile that does not offend anyone and uses readily available, consistent quality ingredients. An artisan spice blender will be concerned about quality, flavour and appropriateness of use.

 

As one grows familiar with all the different herbs and spices, it becomes apparent that most of the spices we use have quite distinct and often very different characteristics. Some are strong and could be even described as unpleasant in isolation, others like one of my favourite spices cinnamon, are a delight to experience even on their own. When I make a spice blend I seek to create a different taste which can only be achieved by putting a combination of spices and herbs together, and sometimes a spice blend bears little resemblance to any of the individual spices used.

 

In this 1 ½ hour workshop, participants will be guided through the principles behind spice blending, will receive a mortar and pestle as part of the registration fee, and make their own bespoke spice blend to take home.
