Herbs and the Five Flavors
with clinical herbalist Kelly McCarthy
In this sensory class, we’ll be delving into the five flavors: sweet, salty, bitter, sour, and pungent. With the frame of food as medicine, we’ll explore how each of these flavors supports our health. We’ll look in-depth at which foods and medicinal herbs have which flavors, and what we can learn about their medicinal and healing properties simply through their taste. Blending modern science and folk wisdom, this class will open up a whole new world when it comes to eating. There will be lots of snacks at each class so we can experience each flavor, as well as recipes to take home.
