Course Description: This course is for those with little experience with yeast breads. It will take place in Marge’s Callahan kitchen and will include a light lunch. We will make 3 yeast breads, two of which the participants will take home to bake after the lunch.
Instructor: Marge has been an herbalist for over 40 years and an avid plant person her entire life.
Her herbal interests span both the culinary, the medicinal and body care as well as growing herbs.
Marge is a passionate cook and most of her cooking is herb enhanced. She teaches classes in cooking with herbs, making your own medicines, creating lotions and ointments, making soap, and blending scents. She has conducted hands on workshops on these and a variety of other herbal topics across the United States. In 2011 she created Magnolia Hill Nursery which wholesales organic herbs and heirloom vegetables to local garden centers.
She is currently a board member of the International Herb Association (IHA) and the International Herb Association Foundation and is past president of IHA’s former Southeastern Region. She has authored numerous herbal articles published in IHA’s annual Herb of the Year publications. Recently she has begun collecting data on the history of folk medicine in NE Florida and SE Georgia hoping to shed some light on this often neglected and unstudied aspect of herbal lore.
