Yardley Inn’s Latest “Doctor and the Chef” Series Features Herbs and Spices for Healing and Cooking

YARDLEY, PA – Summer is a season of growing and grilling. The Yardley Inn is proud to announce the next Doctor and the Chef event, featuring herbs and spices that work for both cooking and healing. This event, entitled “The Flavors and Healing Properties of Herbs and Spices,” will take place Wednesday, August 15 beginning at 7 p.m., featuring the creative palate of Yardley Inn Executive Chef Eben Copple and healthy advice from Bucks County’s own Dr. Wendy Warner, who appeared as an invited guest on The Dr. Oz Show earlier this year.

“Since so many of us are trying to eat better, (and it’s that time of year), we’re eating more vegetables,” Warner says. “But, if you’re new to cooking or just haven’t ventured very far, you might be getting completely bored with plain steamed vegetables. Learning about spices and herbs will change that… and did you know that they all have health benefits as well?”

This Doctor and the Chef event will illustrate both the flavors and health benefits of a variety of herbs and spices. Many herbs and spices can be helpful in treating certain health conditions or health goals, so cooking healthfully with these ingredients really can make a difference in achieving a healthier lifestyle.

MENU:

1st course:

Soft herb salad, basil, sorrel, chive, parsley, nasturtium leaf,
horseradish dressing, celery seed crisp

2nd course:

Coriander and fennel seed crusted tuna, charred onion
with turmeric and garam masala, veggie ribbons

3rd course:

Ginger oatcakes, candied fennel bulb, allspice syrup

An underlying theme of the Doctor and the Chef series is that all the culinary courses featured are purposely selected by Chef Eben so that guests can easily prepare these same meals at home. All attendees of this Doctor and the Chef event will receive copies of a handout detailing what herbs work for which medical conditions.

Tickets to attend this second event in “The Doctor and the Chef” series are $55, which includes dinner. Tax and gratuity are additional. Tickets can be purchased through the Yardley Inn.
