The Ayurvedic Kitchen

The Ayurvedic Kitchen

Ayurveda is a 5,000-year-old science of life, rooted in the knowledge and practices of Vedic India. It is designed to help people achieve long life, health and balance. In this one-day workshop led by Chef Richard LaMarita (a student and practitioner of Ayurveda for over 30 years), we will introduce the fundamental principles of Ayurvedic knowledge and practical applications, including diet. You'll learn about the nature and understanding of consciousness; the 5 elements and their relation to the 3 doshas; the definition of health in Ayurveda; how to identify your dosa (body type) and imbalances; the 3 cornerstones of the Ayurvedic diet; the science of digestion (Agni, Ojas and Ama); detoxification procedures; herbal remedies and medicinal uses of spices; and pulse diagnosis. The morning will be spent in lecture; then we'll spend the afternoon in the kitchen with hands-on cooking. We'll make: basil ginger lemonade; aloo chaat (Indian-style potato salad); eggplant mushroom chickpea curry; long beans with paneer; spiced poha (steamed dry flattened rice); and roast cardamom peaches in a ginger syrup.
