|Reviewers Comments: ||Using this enjoyable resource can be a great way to help participants who are beginner or novice cooks feel more comfortable using herbs and spices in the kitchen. It reviews a variety of healthy foods and what spices can be combined with them, what spices can be substituted for each other and when to add spices and herbs for the best flavor. Some experienced cooks may find this presentation educational as well, as it explains topics such as the difference between spices, herbs and seasoning blends; fat, sugar and salt reduction tips; and where and how long to store spices.
A notable features of the presentation is the numerous helpful presentation tips and speaking points located in the notes section of the Power Point slides. The valuable tips provided may help to ensure a more compelling presentation. These are not available with the online slideshow. The slideshow includes cute cartoon graphics, and uses “fascinating flavor facts” to further enliven the presentation.
The two handouts provided are great complements to the presentation. Both contain a lot of information, both from and in addition to the presentation, such as recipes and how to plant an herb garden. Handouts have a clear layout and design and colorful graphics. For a great presentation, the slideshow can be used along with both handouts and a cooking demonstration that illustrates the some of the concepts from the resource.
