The spice of life

The spice of life

The history of spice is almost as old as human civilisation itself. From the time humans first learnt to cook, we’ve been adding aromatic, plant-based flavour enhancers – spices – to our food. And in return, our love of spice has shaped cultures, raised and destroyed empires; and fuelled global exploration.

This workshop explores the origins, history, cultural associations, and economic value of a number of common and unusual spices. Taste test for yourself popular spices from the Medieval and Renaissance periods through to the staples of today. Maybe a little grains of paradise, star anise or sumac is just what you need to spice up your life?
