Making The Most Of
Fresh Living Herbs
Fresh living herbs, bought as pots, are one of the most versatile ingredients available and have the potential to completely transform a dish, drink or dessert.
Having pots of fresh living herbs in the kitchen offer easy and healthy ways of adding flavour to dishes, no matter how simple. Try adding some basil to a simple tomato pasta sauce and you’ll know what we mean!
Mark Sargeant couldn’t agree more…throughout his career, from 13 years with Gordon Ramsey to opening two of his own restaurants, Mark Sargeant has cooked with a wealth of fresh herbs.
He says: “My kitchens wouldn’t be complete without a variety of fresh herbs. They give you a fresh, constant supply of flavour, add colour to your food, as well as provide you with vital vitamins. My favourite herbs are coriander, I love it’s citrusy, fresh aroma; parsley because it’s such a good all-rounder, and basil which sings the flavour of sunshine. In my opinion a pot of fresh herbs is a must have for any kitchen; herbs can simply transform a great meal into a stunning meal in a matter of minutes.”
