About this event

Join Sarah Hartzell, one of Curio's recipe developers, as she guides you in this seasonal edition of our popular introduction to spices class ‘Spice 101.’

In this class, we’ll explore using spices to intensify and marry flavor. You'll learn how to toast and grind spices, why to temper some in oil but bloom others in water, and how to layer spices for maximum flavor. We'll introduce you to Curio’s Spice Flavor Wheel — a resource for understanding how to identify and layer flavors and spices. And, Sarah will demonstrate making a Greek spiced appetizer, harvest vegetable salad and a festive masala-driven dessert.

You'll head home with additional holiday-themed recipes along with a sample of our Signature Blend, Kozani.

Sarah Hartzell’s passion for cooking was stoked at an early age by her grandmothers. As a toddler, she would help pit cherries for cherry pie. Her technique has improved since then (she gets significantly less cherry juice on the walls) and she continues to expand her culinary skill set. Sarah is owner of Two Knives and a Pan where she provides both in-home personal chef services and a weekly meal delivery service. She is also a recipe developer for Curio Spice Co. and loves creating recipes to make cooking with spices more approachable.At home, Sarah enjoys cooking for (and with) her husband and two young daughters, who seem to love food just as much as their mom!
