Rated 5 out of 5 by from Yummy! A virtual around the world culinary experience - within the comfort of one’s own kitchen. I would love more courses such as this - particularly vegan culinary arts; in addition to food safety courses. Thanks again for another great course.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good, Not Quite What I Was Expecting My wife and I both enjoy our subscription to Wondrium streaming, but we have different interests. So we hunt around a bit to find a class that both of us can watch and enjoy together. She loves to cook. I love to eat. So this class on spices seemed like it might be a fit. If my wife was writing this review, she would probably have given it 5 stars. I am going to give it 4 stars. I was expecting something perhaps on the scholarly side detailing the history, economic impact, etc of spices, or perhaps more along the lines of a wine tasting class giving the different characteristics of each spice or herb. What transpired was a cooking class wherein he talked about spices. To give the presenter his props he did touch on the themes of history, economic impact and the flavor/aroma profile of the various spices covered as he cooked/prepared various dishes with the spices. I especially enjoyed the episode on Mexico-Chiles for Every Palate. And I did learn a lot about different types of chiles. The presenter/chef obviously enjoys what he does and has a great method of conveying that and of teaching. As long as you take it for what it is, a cooking class wherein he talks about spices, you will enjoy it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent I really enjoy watching Bill Briwa. If you watch all of his courses, you gain an education that almost comes to you subliminally. He is not only a good chef but i think that he is a good teacher and i have gained alot.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent course, instructor, and materials! This is so much more than a collection of recipes and spice blends from India, Mexico, China, the Mediterranean, Northern Europe, and New America Cuisine. It teaches what cooking shows do not, namely how to toast, grind, and when not to grind, store, cook, and combine spices. I learned how to get the most out of spices and how important toasting is.
