Cooking Class - Cooking with Powerhouse Ingredients: Turmeric and Homemade Ghee

Learn techniques and benefits of cooking with healthful and delicious turmeric and ghee.

Turmeric has long been known to be a healing spice. Gaining in popularity, this ancient herb has powerful anti-inflammatory properties. Besides calming the nervous system, Turmeric also detoxifies the digestion. In this class you will learn how to incorporate this powerful herb into delicious recipes.

Ghee is sometimes called “butter on steroids” because of its rich and bold flavor. It has healing and medicinal properties making it an excellent addition to every day cooking. Organic ghee can be expensive to purchase, but is simple to make at home with the right ingredients.

Chef Neelam will teach you to use turmeric to create a delicious golden porridge, called “Khichari” which is simple, healing, and can be eaten as a meal. She will also teach you how to use turmeric and other ancient spices, like ginger, to season locally sourced seasonal vegetables to make a delicious and detoxifying dish. Finally you will end the class with a special herbal tea concoction prepared especially for you.

Chef was very nice, seemed slightly disorganized and did not know her own equipment which caused mozzarella to fail and left trying to save cheese by making it into a different kind, Dishes in sink from different class from day before, area very small, Extreme waste of money for what it costs and what we actually ate and what we learned which was how to not make mozzarella.

This was a wonderful experience. I really enjoyed learning simple but delicious recipes. The atmosphere was very welcoming from the start and I enjoyed the whole process. The meditation was a really unique aspect and it made the cooking process that much more meaningful. Chef Neelam is a great teacher and I am happy I learned so much in one class. I would definitely take another class.

This class was exactly what I was looking for. Chef Neelam is really good at making simple, nourishing foods taste fabulous. It was nice to be in her home, and to start the class off with some meditation that really helped me feel centered and at peace. I feel so inspired after attending this class, I feel like it's possible to really care for my body by the foods that I eat, even though I am busy and have kids that can be picky. It was just the boost I needed!
