Ready for some serious spice exploration? Delve into the enchanting world of spice blending with Susan Turner of Curio Spice, our lead recipe developer.

She’ll introduce you to our flavor theory and the principles that we use to make the exquisite blends we’re known for. Susan will guide you through tasting different spices and teach you about flavor and aroma. She will demonstrate blending techniques and discuss how attention to details such as texture and color can make a blend sing. And, Susan will share insider knowledge about layering flavor, roasting spices, grinding, sensory analysis, and training your palate.

In the hands-on portion of this class, you’ll make one of Curio’s classic blends plus create a blend of your own from our spice cupboard of over 80 intriguing spices.You’ll head home with Curio's Spice Flavor Wheel, blending recipes, and jars of the two blends you made during class. Join us for this wonder-filled evening! This is a small class, limited to 15 participants. Sign up today to reserve your spot!
