The Elixir Kitchen: Natural Roots Wellness Foraging Sessions
Your Backyard & Beyond: Foraging & Plant ID
Lachelle & Eva have joined forces to create Natural Roots Wellness and the Elixir Kitchen where you can join them to explore the world of plant remedies and nutritional healing. In this session, we will go no further than right in our own backyards and neighborhoods to see what wild herbs can be used for food and medicine. We will learn about foraging, what it is and the history of this ancient way of sourcing food and medicine. Next we will learn about 5 of the most common medical plants found right in our back yards and neighborhoods.
We will focus on a featured mystery herb that Chef Lachelle will lead the class in preparing a shared meal of wild herb pesto pasta, seasonal salad and garlic bread, while Eva walks us through the preparation of an herbal cough syrup that you can add to your home pharmacy just in time for the changing season’s sniffles and sneezes!
What is an Apothecary? Your Natural Medicine Cabinet
“What the heck is an apothecary?” “How can I preserve local plants to create my own natural medicine cabinet?” Now that you’re primed on how to forage for beneficial plants in your own backyard, look no further than this second session of the Elixir Kitchen’s Foraging Series to answer these questions about stocking your own Natural Medicine Cabinet.
Eva & Lachelle will review their top 10 favorite plants, their uses and ideas for how to prepare and store them. Our featured plant for this session is elderberry! Chef Lachelle will lead the class in preparing an elderberry cobbler, while Eva walks us through the preparation of an elderberry jelly. We’ll also be creating a tincture to boost your immune system for the upcoming winter season!
Tonics & Tinctures: Whole Body Health
In the third session of the Elixir Kitchen’s Foraging Session Series, we invite you to discover the difference between tonics, tinctures and fire ciders. This class has a unique focus on the herb rosemary and its many attributes and benefits. Learn about their personal journeys to plant healing as Eva walks us through the preparation of fire cider and rosemary tincture. Chef Lachelle will prepare a seasonal salad with Rosemary’s Fire Vinaigrette, a combination of fire cider and rosemary infused oil curated by Natural Roots Wellness. We will conclude the session with a bonus conversation about natural yoni care and womb health.
The Elixir Kitchen is a groundbreaking series of 3 workshops based on two guiding foundations:
Food is medicine. Power in plants.
