April back to top

We are living in a time when people are experiencing physical, mental and emotional ailments that can all be supported by a diet incorporating certain herbs, spices, whole foods and simple preparation methods that allow for optimal health. The "Food is Medicine" classes will dive deeper into some major symptoms of society that we believe can be relieved by making healthier lifestyle choices.

with Hillary Mendoza & Danielle Steffener of The Nectary

Thursday, May 17

6 - 9 PM

Relish Culinary Center, Healdsburg


From the NIH: "Inflammation has long been a well-known symptom of many infectious diseases, but molecular and epidemiological research increasingly suggests that it is also intimately linked with a broad range of non-infectious diseases, perhaps even all of them."

The menu and discussion for this class will focus on eating to reduce inflammation, focusing on food preparation techniques and food combining practices. You'll also learn about medicinal herbs and spices that can easily be incorporated into everyday eating to naturally provide support to decrease inflammation. We will explore various fermentation processes and herbal allies as well as simple foods and preparation methods that encourage healthy digestion. After all this nourishing cooking, we'll sit to enjoy our feast with a spot of wine.

  • "Love Your Adrenals" Herbal Treats with Herbal Tea
  • Spring Greens Vitality Soup
  • "Find Your Roots" Salad
  • Chickpea Flatbreads
  • Creamy Golden Mylk Dessert
