The Spice Is Right At Kew Gardens' Flavour Weekends

This is a sponsored article on behalf of Kew Royal Botanical Gardens.

Here's something to tickle your fancy and your taste buds: the Spicy Flavour weekends at Kew Gardens. Engage your brain and your senses at a series of interactive workshops, talks and tastings. The herby hub of this flavoursome festival is The Spice Exchange, an architectural delight piled high with spice jars.

A taste of what's on offer

  • Discover the science behind the spiciness of chilli and other spices, and find out how flavours travel from our tongues to our brains at the Flavour Perception Experience.
  • Are you a 'supertaster'? Dr Rachel Edwards-Stuart tests your taste buds to reveal which of three genetic groups you belong to.
  • Buy tasty treats from The East India Company pop-up store.
  • Be inspired by Spicy Kitchen's cooking demonstrations and recipes to dust off those spice jars hidden at the back of your cupboards.
  • Sample savouries from Keik Bakery including spicy couscous, roasted pumpkin strudel and Mount Etna galette.
  • Spicy Flavour weekend tickets also give you access to all of the gardens and glasshouses so you can find and admire the plants themselves. Hot stuff.
