Practical master class with Jekka and Alistair
Practical tips on which part to use and how to use herbs in the Kitchen and Home.
Herbs have been used by man since records began. It is only in the last century that we, in the UK, have lost the knowledge of knowing which part of the plant to use, how much to use and which time of year it is best to harvest. The combination of herbs with food is not only for flavour but also to aid digestion for as Hippocrates said ‘Let medicine be your food and food be your medicine’. You will learn not only how to turn a meal into a feast but also how to preserve herbs for use throughout the year, both for medicinal and culinary use.
"Inspirational day, both cooking & gardening. Lovely, enthusiastic & approachable people."
"This has given me the courage to use and grow a wider range of herbs and make them intrinsic to my life."
“Brilliant learning atmosphere. Relaxed and just generally fabulous!”
“I loved the food: I have been inspired to cook and create with herbs.”
