About This Class

Turmeric is one of the world’s most powerful beautifying foods. This potent spice is prized for its antioxidant levels and anti-inflammatory benefits, both of which directly influence our day to day appearance and the way we age.

While few home cooks are confident using ground turmeric in their recipes, far fewer of them have used, or even tasted, fresh turmeric root. In addition to its powerful beauty and health benefits, fresh turmeric root has a subtle, almost floral, flavor that makes it ideal for both sweet and savory dishes. In this class you'll discover the healing properties and culinary uses of this essential beauty food ingredient, and try 3 of my favorite recipes for using fresh turmeric root in daily cooking. You'll learn the health and beauty benefits of fresh turmeric root; where to find this ingredient, how to store it and prepare it for use in a recipe; and get inspired to use it in sweet and savory recipes.

This class is geared toward health- and beauty-conscious home cooks and those who like to stay ahead of ingredient trends, but no prior knowledge is necessary!
