Spice is Nice – Friday 1st December 2017
December 1 @ 6:00 pm - 9:00 pm
In this class we’ll cover the essentials of how to get the best out of spices, both familiar and less well known. We’ll cover basic techniques, like dry-frying and tempering, look at buying and storage, grinding and blending to make our own curry powders and spice mixes. Naturally we’ll conjure up some amazing spice scented dishes. We’ll travel from the wonderful black curry of Sri Lanka, or a sharp smoky-sweet Keralan prawn curry, around the spiced world, taking in, maybe, a North African dukkah mix, or a gently aromatic Moroccan tagine, roast cod with Japanese togarashi crust, or Mexican salsa with its chilli and cinnamon notes.
