"Herbs play a huge role in the longevity diet of Ikarians. Used as infusions and flavoring, they are packed with nutrition. This class focuses on delicious vegan recipes of the Ikarian table, and, yes, herbs are everywhere!"
In this class, we will focus on the role of herbs, both fresh and dried, on the table and in the tea cups of Ikarians. Herbs and wild greens are among the most important foods in the longevity-inducing diet of Blue Zone Ikaria.

We will learn about the many different herbal teas Ikarians drink and how they play a role in the folk pharmacopoeia of the island. We will learn the proper way to make herbal tea so that all the health-inducing characteristics remain intact. Hint: it’s not with a tea kettle!

I’ll explore some of the delicious herbs that are used in easy, wonderful local dishes, all vegan.
