Saturday, June 24; ongoing from 12:00 to 3:00 pm
Culinary experts from San Francisco's Spice Ace will explore the diversity of spices from the tropics such as vanilla, ginger, cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice. Spice Ace's Master Blender will inspire new recipes and mixes for your next culinary adventure. Drop by anytime that afternoon to learn about the botanical and culinary history of tropical spices, and then, if you wish, visit the Conservatory's vanilla orchid or cinnamon tree inside the greenhouse (event is free, entry to the Conservatory requires admission).
This event is part of Conservatory Curiosities, a summer series of free, outdoor guest demonstrations related to the plant collection inside.
