Ayurveda Cooking Course

In Ayurveda, there is a slogan that says, “You are what you eat”.
Food is seen not just as sustenance, but as a means of maintaining overall health.

Ayurvedic treatment explains the preventative and curative properties of many different herbs and spices – it demonstrates that when used correctly in the appropriate combinations, food can promote well-being and good health, by allowing it to be digested more easily.  Ayurveda and yoga combine the science of health, harmony and inner awareness, which can be achieved with suitable food and disciplined practice. 

This cooking course covers the traditional method of preparing food with herbs and spices for balancing the body, and providing good health.  It also includes methods of preparing and storing the following foods:

  1. herbs and spices for general well-being
  2. herbs and spices for common disorders
  3. grains, beans and seeds
  4. vegetables and fruit
  5. oils and dairy products
  6. tea, hot and cold beverages
  7. rice dishes
  8. breads
  9. soups
  10. sweet dishes
  11. nuts, dried berries and fruit
  12. accompaniments such as chutneys, pickles, dips and sauces

You will get the chance to create some tasty and healthy dishes under personal guidance, and also get to sample your own cooking.

There will be a demonstration of how to prepare the food which will include discussions of how and why the food is prepared in this way, and the particular benefits of the herbs and spices included.  You are encouraged to take notes during the demonstration so that you can review these when you leave.
