Event Details

Betsy Miller, Clinical Herbalist, is of the firm opinion that not all medicinal herbs have to taste gross! This class is based on that premise- learning how to make herbs delicious and enjoyable to take (because herbs really only work when we're willing to take them!). Students will taste, make and discuss recipes for incorporating therapeutic amounts of medicinal herbs into such yummy concoctions as chocolates, soups, baked treats and beverages.
