HAH Monthly Lecture: Rick Bogusch

Herb Blends & Spice Mixes: How to Make Them & How to Use Them

The use of herbs and spices has a long history, longer than you might imagine. The earliest ancient Egyptians enjoyed anise, caraway, cardamom and mustard and the Goths showed their love of black pepper – still the most valuable and traded spice today – when they demanded three thousand pounds of peppercorns, along with gold and silver, not to sack Rome.
In our February lecture, Rick Bogusch, will explore the history and horticulture of herbs and spices and examine spice mixes from around the world and their ingredients. There will be handouts with recipes, as well as spice mix samples. A reception featuring recipes utilizing herbs and spices will follow and take place in the main auditorium upstairs instead of in the John LoGerfo Library.
Rick Bogusch has degrees in botany and landscape architecture and has gardened since he was a young teenager. He worked for Cornell University for 20 years as a landscape architect for the Cornell Botanical Garden. After that he worked as an estate gardener in Columbia County, NY. For the past 10 years he has worked for Peconic Land Trust as the Manager of Bridge Gardens and for the past 4 years he has proudly served on the Board of the Horticultural Alliance. His love and knowledge of plants extends from the extensive herb and vegetable gardens at Bridge Gardens right into the kitchen where he avidly uses what he grows.

Members free; Not yet members $10. Main Hall of the Bridgehampton Community House.
