Congee Curious: Food Is Medicine
This interactive cooking class will be fun and delicious! Despite the concern of eating grains due to being overprocessed or genetically modified, slow cooked grains are still an integral part of Chinese dietary therapy. When we slow cook grains, their starches are able to break down, making them easier to digest and absorb. Herbs are added while cooking, making congee a perfect way to take your medicine! Congees are ideal for everyone, especially those with digestion issues, long term illness, and eating disorders. Most grains can be used to make congee, and we will discuss the differences between drying and moistening grains. In class we will make and eat a delicious gluten-free oat congee!
Participants will be introduced to Chinese herbal dietary theory, join in creating a delicious and nutritious congee, and will learn a little about how the digestive system works.
