Classes on spices?
Can anyone recommend classes on spices in Manhattan or Brooklyn? I've found a couple that are no longer offered (see below) and the only remaining one I've found is a $200 "Secrets of Spices" cooking class at the International Culinary Center; a bit out of my price range.
Doesn't have to be a cooking class per se; an hour-long class or workshop on using spices, history, etc. would be awesome.
I'm thinking about checking out the websites of local spice shops to see if they offer anything.
A World of Spice | Astor Center | $29
From Seeds to Stems: World Spices | Brooklyn Brainery | Cost?
