with Chef Cathryn Pethick

Abundance, bounty, new growth: With the rise of Spring, our fresh food choices expand as the Spring markets fill with the season’s best offerings. It is worth the time it takes to nourish our bodies well, and the simple pleasure of freshly-made food, vibrant, beautiful and a joy to see and taste, gives healing to body and soul. From an Ayurvedic perspective, we will emphasize the specific food tastes and preparation methods that serve to balance us best as we move from the Spring season toward Summer.
