How tea and spices have become the preferred language in our home.
Spices - Beautiful, knobbly, multi-faceted, colourful and with so many flavour profiles. 'A bit like us as people don't you think? ' I muse out loud to my children as we have afternoon tea with a mishmash of lamingtons, Indian pakora that all centre around a steaming, spicy, soul-warming, cup of masala chai. This Friday I will attempt to bring our spice friends out into the open and introduce them to a new, wide-eyed younger audience. They will play, make friends, perhaps even be pleasantly surprised at discovering something different. At the end of their mini spice tour, each individual will have had a turn to smell, feel, crush and create their own concoction.
My hope is that this will spark some curiosity around how to use these different set of tools. Perhaps even create some interest and questioning around ourselves and how we all can fit together in a harmonious united community, just like their newfound spice friends. Join us at Lane Cove Plaza this Friday to celebrate Autumn Harmony with Spice Stories from The Chai Room www.lanecove.gov.au.nsw/festivals
