I am currently obsessing over Jekka McVicar. Between her beautiful chelsea flower booth where herbs looked prettier than I have ever seen them look before and the opportunity to peruse her herb cookbook while in London — I am smitten. I have plenty of herbs, but now thanks to Jekka, I am planting even more…and new things like Tansy, Goats Rue, Teasle, Angelica, and Borage. I can’t wait to try out some of the amazing concoctions in her books with this new garden treasures.
My favorite herbs are tarragon (to use in pan sauces over chicken or fish) and lemon thyme which I use every where. Do you grow herbs? What is your favorite? How do you use it?
