Healing Winter Soups with Michael Becherer – Feb 22, 2:30-5 PM

Saturday, February 22 @ 2:30 – 5:00 PM

What is more comforting than a bowl of homemade soup?

Soup is the most nourishing meal we can eat, as it keeps you hydrated, balances blood sugar, and is chock full of minerals! If there is only one thing you learn to make well from scratch, it should be soup, as the health benefits are unparalleled!

In this class macrobiotic teachers Michael Becherer and Rachel Zierzow will demonstrate the techniques for making two different kinds of soup, Mexican Black Bean Soup (with homemade beans) and Creamy Butternut Squash Soup with Fresh Rosemary.

You’ll discover:

  • The health benefits of each soup and their ingredients
  • Tips for slicing and dicing vegetables, tips for making delicious and digestible beans from scratch
  • How to achieve the right texture for your soups (not to thin, not too thick)
  • How to layer ingredients for optimal flavor
  • How to season your soups
  • How to vary each soup type with different ingredients to make a whole new recipe!

Then we will sit down to try our soups with time for Q&A.

Everyone will go home with recipes to make throughout the year at home.

$60 for class, tastings, and recipes.

Space is limited! Reserve your space online or with $60 Venmo payment to Rachel Zierzow (@Rachel-Zierzow) with “Healing Soups” in the comments. Email rachel@cookloveheal.com with any questions.

Address for class will be given upon registration (close to Escarpment/William Cannon in SW Austin).
