Winter Insiders Walk - Chocolate and Spice [15]

Winter Insiders Walk - Chocolate and Spice
Members Only

The very word spice is an evocative one. What does it conjure up for you? Does it bring to mind the traditional flavours and fragrances of winter that are brought to us by chocolate, cinnamon, bay, cardamom, pepper and vanilla?
Where do these familiar yet exotic flavours come from? The history of the spice trade, the value we have placed on spices, the stories of their propagation and use is what we will discover during the walk. The quest for spices triggered the early exploration which led to the discovery of the new world. Today we will explore some of these tales and the plants that have added so much spice to our lives.

We will start with a spiced hot chocolate and finish with spiced treats at Plant Craft Cottage.
