Best gift for a keen cook

Best gift for a keen cook

A basket of kitchen herbs is a great gift for an ardent home cook. Follow this step-by-step guide to making a gift that’ll keep on giving for years…

  1. Line a basket with a sheet of plastic. Punch in a few holes to allow for drainage.
  2. Fill with potting soil or a herb potting mix.
  3. We suggest violas (to pretty up a salad), Italian parsley (to flavour a variety of dishes), dill (it adds great flavour to fish dishes), coriander (a must for curries), rosemary (perfect for Sunday’s roast lamb), and peppery rocket (to add to salads).
  4. Take care not to over water, and keep in a sunny spot.
