Learn to Make Stocks and Broths

LEARN TO MAKE STOCKS AND BROTHS

Join Dr. Peter Fox at 2:00PM on February 22nd and learn to make stocks and broths. To quote Escoffier, “Stock is everything”. even Kobe Bryant is singing the praises of broth’s healing properties. Learn how to make it, taste some, learn how it can support bone strength, a youthful skin appearance, GI health, and the immune system.

“A study of chicken soup (broth) conducted by the University of Nebraska Medical Center wondered what it was in the soup that made it so beneficial for colds and flu. They found that the amino acids that were produced when making chicken stock reduced inflammation in the respiratory system and improved digestion. Also, research is proving it can also boost the immune system and heal disorders like allergies, asthma, and arthritis.”
