Do you know that basil takes its name from the Greek word “basilikos” meaning royal ? No wonder it’s the queen of aromatic herbs. Whether in a salad, sprinkled on slices of tomato or in a cooked dish, it will uplift whatever you make. Thanks to our ultra-practical format, you don’t even need to have green fingers !
Basil is particularly prized and popular in Mediterranean cuisine. We recommend using it and enjoying as much as possible — whatever your favourite recipes.
You can even make an authentic pesto at home with our dried basil. Moisten it with the olive oil used for the recipe, and then mix it with the usual ingredients. Traditionally garlic, Parmesan cheese and pine nuts are used, but feel free to get creative and adapt the recipe to your taste. You’re in for a treat !
