Guest Speaker Beverly Stabelforth-May is a renowned artist who has taken her love of creating to the kitchen! She has a spectacular garden in Creemore, Ontario that has been featured in several garden tours. She has always had a great love of culinary herbs and incorporates them in many unique and sumptuous dishes.
She gained an early appreciation for all things herbal from her grandmother, a herbalist in England. Ancient herbal remedies for cleansing and healing the body continue to be practiced today with many rooted in native culture. Herbs are classified by colour and texture and trees are included in the list. Willow bark tea can soothe a headache and thyme tea makes a good body cleanser.
Be cautious when using herbal remedies not to interfere with existing health conditions, she advised.
In the kitchen, she said turmeric is amazing, oregano is potent, and a hint of mint makes a salad fragrant and delicious. As people leave the farm and head to apartment living, they can scale down their garden to a balcony-sized herb planter.
She feels most people tend to cook what they know, but suggested experimenting and be surprised with the variety of tastes herbs have to offer.
