Spices from South of France marketThis is a photo from that I took at an open air farmers market in the south of France this summer. Can you smell these spices? Cayenne, Turmeric, Cumin, Coriander and more! Colorful and tasty, spices flavor our dishes and also help us digest foods as well as strengthen our immunity. I will be teaching Spice It Up! Creative Cooking with Herbs and Spices in the Berkshires, MA January 16-18, 2015 and hope you can join me and spread the good word. CECs credits are available for dietitians, too.

Spice It Up!: Creative Cooking with Herbs and Spices; January 15-17, 2016

A pinch of this, a sprinkle of that—the right herbs and spices enhance the flavor of any dish. In this fun and informative hands-on vegetarian cooking class, gourmet organic chef, teacher, and cookbook author Leslie Cerier shows you how to use herbs and spices to make delicious, globally inspired dishes, from appetizers to desserts.
