February 19th: Preparing Homemade Chai with Freshly Ground Spices (ALBANY) (SOLD OUT!)

Come learn how to make deliciously spicy and creamy chai with Deepa Natarajan! You'll learn which spices to use, including some surprising ones, and a bit about their history and ethnobotanical intrigue. Together we'll prepare a batch of chai to drink together and you'll be guided step by step through the process. All participants will leave with a master recipe as well as chai spices and black tea to make their own batch at home.  

About the instructor:

Deepa Natarajan has been the UC Botanical Garden at Berkeley's Coordinator of Public Programs for ten years, transforming her own love of gardening into a year-round series of events that focus on the many uses of plants - medicinal, culinary, fibers, dyes and more. Deepa started her personal blog, plantspeople, as a place to share her love of plants and their application to food, beauty, cloth, and medicine, and it has grown into an organization that offers garden design and education. Deepa's South Indian heritage has led her to India nearly every summer where she's studied many traditional arts including dance, textiles, and cookery. She also helps her husband run the Sangati Center, a non-profit organization dedicated to presenting acoustic concerts of Indian classical music.
