Bhagavat Life at The Bhakti Center
Join a group of like-minded people in the East Village to explore the art of cooking incredibly tasty and healthy food! In these classes Bhagavat Life‘s Divya Alter will lead you to interactively learn about a variety of dishes, flavors, utensils, smells, textures, and colors to make your life better. And you’ll most certainly walk away finding your kitchen a more comfortable, useful, and inspiring place, no matter who you are! This approach is based on Ayurveda, the 5,000-year-old tradition of holistic medicine that comes from India. It applies to practically any style of cooking, culture, or circumstance.
These are one-session classes that introduce you to the art of making delicious easy-to-make vegetarian meals based on Ayurveda. You will gain a basic understanding of:
- Principles of what makes food healthy or not for you.
- An overview of how to use spices and make spice mixtures.
- An introduction into making entrées, soups, desserts, teas, and grain dishes.
- The secrets of making sure your food is easy to digest and assimilate.
- Tips on applying Ayurvedic principles to any type of cuisine.
- Resources to support you in accessing optimal food choices in the grocery store or at restaurants
Each class will combine discussion, participatory cooking demonstrations, and ends with a delicious meal for everyone! As Ayurveda aligns health with the rhythm of the seasons, our intro cooking classes change focus seasonally.
