Extravagonzo Gourmet Foods are the real deal: no flavorings, essential oils, or extracts are used. The citrus, for example, is crushed with the olives so your palate gets a bit of the zest, some of the seed, and the full flavor of the fruit. And the dried red chili is soaked in the olive oil for up to 60 days until both flavor and color are absorbed.

These culinary oils and balsamics were developed with you in mind …for the gourmet in all of us!

Class: Cider Loves Cheese!

While pairing wine and cheese can be an overly-complicated business, and pairing beer and cheese can fill you up too quickly, cider and cheese are natural companions. Many drier styles pair beautifully with rich, buttery cheeses (think double-cream cheddar, a 2-year aged gouda or a creamy bleu), while the big apple flavors of semi-sweet ciders is gorgeous with fresh chevre or mild, nutty, soft-ripened cheeses.

Host Defense emerged from the fusion of skill sets from two experts: Paul Stamets and C. Dusty Yao. Paul's long time expertise in the taxonomy and cultivation of mushrooms perfectly matched C. Dusty Yao's years of making herbal extracts. The marriage - literally - of these two experts gave rise to the Host Defense products you enjoy today. Their shared passion for exploring the natural world, from thousands of hours of hiking (and laughing) through the old growth forest, and their combined ideas created the wellspring that gave birth to the  Host Defense product lines that continue today.

Join us as we continue to walk this path of exploration and healing, bridging modern science with ancient traditions. We honor and share the wisdom of nature. Host Defense is more than a product line: we are on a myco-mission to spread the power of  mushrooms supporting healthy lifestyles.

Cooking Class: Trip to West Bengal with Sangeeta Mistry

This class will cover dishes inspired by West Bengal as well as other Indian states in the east.
Bengali cuisine is known for its subtle and fiery flavors, with unique cooking styles. With an emphasis on vegetables, lentils, rice and spices, this is a little-known part of Indian cuisine.

The use of spices for vegetable dishes is quite extensive and includes many combinations not found in other parts of India. Main examples are the onion-flavoured kalonji (nigella or black onion seeds), which is one of the spices in Panch Phoron Masala, (blend of 5 whole spices) the use of which can elevate a humble dish to a whole new level.

Come join Sangeeta as she demonstrates this unique cooking style and discover another distinctive food culture of India!
