Workshop: Ayurvedic Cooking

  • Makeshift Collective 410 Spadina Avenue 2nd Floor Toronto, ON (map)

Come share an Ayurvedic tradition at Makeshift, with teacher Myra! Ayurveda translates from Sanskrit as "the science of life." The attendees will attain a basic knowledge of Ayurvedic principles in food preparation and food choices according to individual body types.

Attendees will also walk away with three recipes typical of Ayurvedic breakfast, lunch, and a non-alcoholic aperitif. The session will be 150% hands-on; we will be cutting, boiling vegetables, herbs, roots, and fruit with Myra's guidance. Our teacher will be providing explanations on the choices and combinations of produce and preparation within the Ayurvedic tradition. Participants will then enjoy a nourishing meal at the end of the workshop.

There is no prior cooking knowledge or special skills are required for this workshop. Anyone interested in healthy eating, learning how to cook balanced meals, or just looking for a couple extra vegetarian recipes to add to their diet are welcome to attend. Simply bring your own bowl and spoon, and curiosity.
