This month will focus on the virtues of Turmeric--it is not only tasty in a variety of dishes, but is also healthy for you -- we are now finding this stuff out. Come and find out the details from Shivani, who has traveled the globe, if not for just this cooking class alone. Why is it important? When and how to do it? Come and See.

In search of spices--
Drove Columbus to set sail--

Right idea, Chris!!

Flavor rice with turmeric. Okay. Or how about cooking yellow/pink lentils, and mixed vegetable -all of these with various amounts of turmeric. Which ones are best with strong spice, and which are best to have much more subtle flavoring of turmeric? And what about the herbal/vitaminic virtues of turmeric that are starting to come out in racent literature? What is the connection, if any, between so many spices in other cultures, and a predominance of tasty spices in general-- while USA is salt, pepper and meat? All this information and example will be molded together into a constantly varying, passion-induced choreographical educational and cultural trip. If making "panch phorang" uses whole seeds, how much is too much, and what kinds of seeds are used? fennel, fenugreek, nigella seeds, black mustard seeds and cumin seeds? Very aromatic and exotic. What happens when you add turmeric to this then? Come to hear and see all about it. This class starts at 4:00pm on Saturday, APRIL 14th at the United Crescent Hill Ministry kitchen (150 State Street, LVL). Priced for your participation--FREE! As always, our chef will be explaining, demonstrating, answering questions and engaging all participants about healthful recipes--and will do us a favor by fusing the tasty, economical and healthy into beautiful creations. Come and see the marvel! Change starts from messing with things in the kitchen indeed! From beginners to experts --all have a place by the cooking hearth. Please bring your friends; they might thank you!

The locale has a huge kitchen at the United Crescent Hill Ministries facility. ==> Here's the thinking: If we spice and prepare plant-based foods in such a way that people love the taste...then we can put another nail in the coffin of "dead meat, inc." We only allow for 90 minutes to learn: What a challenge--Let's do it! Come and hear all about it--and see it, and try it. We mean you! Come at 4:00pm on Saturday, APRIL 14th to the United Crescent Hill Ministry kitchen (150 State Street, LVL) to see this month's chef explaining, demonstrating, answering questions, and engaging all participants about these matters.

Set this on your calendar for every month (2nd Saturday at 4pm).

EarthSave leans toward the thinking that helping to save the earth is only a bite away. Each bite turns into a meal, so helping the earth becomes a meal away. Each meal comes from a recipe, so helping the earth is thus a recipe away. Each recipe is taught and/or tried, so helping the earth is one class away. This is why we want you to come to EarthSave's cooking class! Through this class, you can start bringing habits of health to your body while moving the planet towards the same…one bite/meal/recipe/class at a time! If you can RSVP, then do so (502 299 9520 or louisville@earthsave.org; not strictly required). New menu and ideas every 2nd Saturday. Come often...and stay for the potluck that follows at 6pm.

This event is not only valuable, it’s free; a freewill basket for the chef will be passed.

Absolutely everyone is welcome: Spread the word!
