Household herbs
Fresh herbs can add a flavourful depth to ordinary dessert recipes.

1. ROSEMARY The delicate aroma of rosemary in shortbread is an absolute winner. Perfect with a cuppa – don’t knock it till you try it!

2. BASIL A favourite in Asian stir-fries for its strong fragrance, add this aromatic herb to vanilla ice-cream for a delicious summery twist.

3. THYME This pretty herb doesn’t just make a beautiful cake decoration – add lemon thyme to panna cotta for a distinctive flavour kick.

4. MINT This readily available herb gives your desserts a fresh lift. Ideal for heavier cakes, in chocolate mousse or infused in a syrup for fruit.
