Herbie has long been the nickname of author Ian Hemphill, a very well-respected herb and spice expert from Australia. His spice shop in Rozelle is called Herbie's Spices. Ian has been in the industry his entire life, as his parents were also in the spice trade. He is in town to celebrate the new and revised edition of his book, The Spice and Herb Bible, Third Edition.
Last night Herbie was in the shop for a dinner celebrating his book and this afternoon, Margaret Gallagher from CBC Radio will interview Herbie for the North by Northwest Cooking Club program.
Cost: FREE, copies of The Spice & Herb Bible, Third Edition will be available for purchase.
