About this event
Delve into the enchanting world of spice blending! Claire will introduce you to Curio’s distinct flavor theory and the principles that we use to make the exquisite blends we’re known for. Claire will guide you through tasting different spices, teach you some spice techniques, and then help you make a spice blend right in your own kitchen. We’ll send you a shopping list of five spices prior to class so you can join in on this hands-on, sensory class in the comfort of your home.
Claire will teach you about flavor and aroma and how attention to details such as texture and color, or techniques like toasting, can make a blend sing. And, she'll share insider knowledge about layering flavor, sensory analysis, and training your palate.
To participate hands-on during this class, you will need rose petals, cinnamon, cumin seeds, coriander seeds, cardamom seeds, a small skillet, measuring spoons, a small mixing bowl, and a tool to grind your spices (such as a mortar and pestle or electric coffee grinder). You can order individual spices that you need or you can order a complete spice bundle at a discounted rate on our website:
Two weeks before class we will send you an email including:
- The link to the event on Zoom
- A reminder about what you'll need for class
- Digital copies of our signature Spice Flavor Wheel, blending recipes, and a worksheet to help you create a blend of your own
One week after class, we’ll share a few extra resources and recipes plus a link for unlimited access to a recording of the class.
