Free event

Herbs surround us, not only in meadows or gardens. Anywhere you go, you can find medicinal herb gardens, foraging classes, herbalisms, recipe books, and seminars about cooking with herbs. The world of wild herbs is marvelous, and deserves to be appreciated and respected in order to get the maximum benefit.

In this meeting dedicated to wild herbs we show how each one has its own set of extraordinary recipes, as well as their own set of health properties. The starting point: the characteristic flavor of each herb will be examined and maximized, while also learning how to minimize waste.
