Grow your own gourmet herbs
Grow Your Own Herbs & Design Your Herb Garden. Saturday 13th September 2014.
"What an explosion of tastes and textures today! I was stunned to discover so many herbs and how they are used in a wide variety of dishes. Today's workshop showed me that I can grow my own spice and herb cupboard in my own garden very easily. Thank you Francoise!" Gill Procter, Winchester
Join us for an assault on the senses - in more ways than one! A travelling show of herbs from around the world to share with you. We show you how to choose the right herbs for the right garden, the vast choice that is available to you and how herbs can enhance your cooking in numerous ways as well as in more unusual concoctions!
We also show you how to make herb vinegars, herb butters, herb oils, preserving your bounty and drying it as well as a tasting bar of herb combinations for your to try and recipes to take away with you.
A demonstration on how to use herbs from around the world will give you a taste of Scandinavia, the Mediterranean (Italy, France, Greece) and the low countries such as Holland and Belgium as well as Switzerland and Germany. We also include herbs from the Far East that you can easily grow in the UK. You will get to plant your own selection of herbs to take away.
