Rockin’ MoRAWkin Cooking Class

5/29  - 5:30-7:30

Join us in this three-part workshop exploring Moroccan culture through it’s sumptuous cuisine. Though Moroccan cooking is known for its savory pastries, meat tagines, and couscous dishes, fruits, nuts, vegetables and gluten-free grains, play a huge part in it’s culinary tradition. The deserts, mountains and fertile coast support the cultivation of an astonishing variety of produce from mangoes and bananas in the south to almonds and apples in the Atlas Mountains and the dishes that we will be creating in this workshop pay tribute to this diversity. Emphasis will be placed on sustainability and community as integral components of authentic Moroccan cooking and eating. Each session will begin with Moroccan mint tea as we discuss what we will be making. In the first session participants will learn to make an assortment of cooked and fresh salads using familiar vegetables in unique ways, fennel with red onion and orange slices, greens with dates and rose petals, carrots with cinnamon and chili, just to name a few. The second session with be focused on building an elaborate ground corn couscous dish topped with stewed vegetables, caramelized onions and raisins, apricots stuffed with walnuts and fried almonds. During the third session we will make several different delicate sweets using dried fruits, nuts, seeds, honey, and orange blossom water.

Introduction to Ayurveda and Meditation Workshop:

May 31st at 5:30-7:30

Did you know you can achieve and maintain a vibrant and joyful state of health by identifying your mind body type and creating a life style that supports your unique nature?
 
Ayurveda "The Wisdom of Life" is a 5,000 year-old system of healing from India. Ayurveda is derived from : "Ayur" meaning life, and "Veda" meaning wisdom. This introductory workshop will offer you a guide for a life of happiness, vitality, love, and purpose while exploring the basics of meditation, one of the most powerful tools Ayurveda prescribes for balancing the mind and body. Ayurveda states that health is not just the absence of a definable disease; it is the dynamic balance of physical, emotional, and spiritual wellbeing.
 
Health and happiness are our natural state, but as we go through life, we get out of balance. This workshop will show how Ayurveda can bring you back into balance through integration of body, mind, and soul. This personalized approach to health allows for the understanding of your unique mind-body type and will aid you to making optimal choices in all aspects of your life
 
The workshop will be led by Deepak Chopra center certified Vedic Educator, George Peterson, in conjunction with "Not Your Sugar Mama's" Organic Café. During our time together, you will begin exploring the basics of Ayurveda and meditation, while indulging in Ayurvedic inspired recipes by "Not Your Sugar Mama's".
 
Join us for this powerful first step into the exploration of balancing our mind and body while enhancing our wellbeing through healthy eating habits!
