Sunday 10: Themed Walk - 'Spices, tastes and flavours' 2.00pm
While some plants provide our staple grains and pulses, other plants have been cultivated for millennia to make those staples more interesting and attractive. Using these plants to improve our eating experience enhances our daily lives. On this walk, we shall take a look at plants with a history of culinary value in the kitchens of the rich and the poor. Meet your Guide at the Front Steps of the GBG.
