Birch Shrink Boxes with Jess Hirsch

Plant Potions with Samantha Martinez

Culinary Herbalism (Half Day Course)


The best way to use plants as medicine is to incorporate them into our daily lives and kitchens! In this workshop we will explore the medicinal properties and flavors of wild harvested and homegrown herbs. We will use both fresh and dried materials to infuse into culinary bases of water, vinegars, botanical oils, salts, fats, and honey. This will include hands-on creation of: wild tea blends, herb salts, compound butters, herbal oils, and herbal/floral-infused honeys. 


Participants will leave with stimulated minds and taste buds, small jars of created plant potions, and a handout with base recipes and instructions for future infusions.
