Ayurvedic Cooking Workshop Ticket


Ayurveda teaches us that food is the best medicine and that foods have the power to heal. Learn how to cook an Ayurvedic meal.

This workshop teaches you the fundamentals of Ayurvedic cooking. We will learn about the 6 tastes of sweet, salty, sour, pungent, bitter and astringent and how we incorporate all 6 tastes in the Ayurvedic meals we create. Each of the 6 tastes have different healing actions on the body and when they are combined together into an complete and balanced meal, they will bring harmony to the body and digestive system. The Ayurvedic meal consists of a variety of dishes so that each of the 6 tastes can be represented. The Ayurvedic meal also allows family members with different doshas to eat together and enjoy a balancing meal no matter what constitution they might be. 

This is a hands-on workshop, where we will be cooking together so you can learn how to make Ayurvedic meals at home. The workshop will begin with an mini-meditation to center the body and calm the mind and will be followed by a cleansing ritual for the hands. The cooking demonstration will start with blending the curry spice mix. You will touch, smell and taste each spice in the curry spice blend to begin to understand their unique flavor profiles. Afterwards, we will create a batch of ghee together as a group and each participant will receive a jar of ghee to take home with them. We will then make a vegetable, lentil and rice dish along with an Ayurvedic dessert using our homemade ghee and curry spice blend. Before we eat, we will stoke agni or our digestive fires by eating the Ayurvedic fresh ginger digestive. Once we've completed creating each of the dishes in our Ayurvedic meal, we will enjoy the food we prepared together as a group. 

Your workshop fee includes the cost of your meal (valued at $30), a jar of handmade ghee (valued at $12), a jar of curry spice blend (valued at $8), as well as a booklet of all the recipes we created together at the workshop along with customizations for the different doshas and constitutions.

Join Marissa Mele of Five Prana Ayurveda at Purna Yoga 828 - 697 D Haywood Road in West Asheville on Saturday, June 1st from 2:00-5:00pm for a workshop on Ayurvedic cooking. Your $75 fee includes an Ayurvedic meal, your handmade, take-home curry spice blend, jar of ghee, and a booklet of recipes created at the workshop.
