National Herb Week
6th - 12th May 2013
There isnít a chef alive who wouldnít agree that
the use of herbs plays an important roll in cooking, from relatively
mild parsley which you can use by the handful, to sage whose pungent
aroma and taste ensures itís usually used sparingly.
By the way, garlic, onions, leeks and celery are botanically
included in the term "herbs" however, on this website (and as far as most cooks
are concerned) they are considered to be vegetables so are not included here.
You can find out more about individual herbs and how to use them in cooking on
our main herbs page.
We have literally hundreds of recipes using all
manner of herbs on this website but below are just a few to whet your appetite.
