Chilli & Spice Workshops
Whether you would like to learn how to grow chillies well or make use of the spices collecting dust in the cupboard, our workshops empower people to grow and/or cook with confidence.
“All those spices and herbs in your spice rack can do more than provide calorie-free, natural flavorings to enhance and make food delicious. They're also an incredible source of antioxidants and help rev up your metabolism and improve your health at the same time.”
- Suzanne Somers
Chilli & Spice Workshops in detail
CHILLI GROWING WORKSHOPS:
There’s a joy in growing your own produce and we’re aware that chillies are a little trickier than some fruits and vegetables. Our chilli growing workshops cover everything needed from seed selection right through to picking and preserving the chillies once ripe. We cover the best methods to increase the chances of germination, best growing medias, pricking out, potting on, fruit setting, feeding and more. Whether you want to grow an ornamental windowsill plant or attempt to grow a big, super-hot plant, we’ve got you covered!
SPICE BLENDING WORKSHOPS:
We immerse you into the world of dry spices and teach you how to blend them in to your own signature mix that will wow your family and friends. This class is an opportunity to learn about individual spices and how they interact with each other. Utilising your sense of smell and taste, this is an interactive workshop full of interesting facts and information designed to boost your knowledge and confidence in the kitchen.
We utilise the knowledge of our friends at Clifton Chilli Club who deliver these workshops. Whilst they often provide their time for free, there are ongoing costs of running these classes such as spices, pots, spoons, labels, pens, information sheets etc. Materials alone per class of 12 costs around £10 per head. By donating today, you can help us continue providing these classes as part of our wellbeing packages.
HOW CAN I ATTEND A WORKSHOP?
Some of the workshops are available to purchase via this website however, if you or your company would like to book either class or enquire about a wellbeing day, please do not hesitate to contact us to discuss your requirements.
