Herbie’s Spice Appreciation – with bonus Gin making kit

This is the comprehensive introduction to spices that almost needs no introduction!

In this two-hour session, Ian Herbie Hemphill, will navigate through the exotic waters of the history of the spice trade, while Liz prepares tasty spiced morsels. You will learn about many different spices, their origins, and how they are processed and traded. Most importantly, Herbie and Liz will de-mystify their flavours and explain the principles behind spice blending, so you will feel comfortable using them in everyday cooking.

In addition to this, Herbie will show you how to use his beautiful quality botanicals to create your own Gin at home.
