Herbs and Spices

A meal ain’t a meal if it doesn’t have some good herbs and spices, that’s what I say. I’m a big fan of the basic herbs (basil, parsley, chives, etc.) but I also enjoy making use of various blends like curry or garam masala and more rare herbs like fennel or sumac (the latter of which it’s hard to find recipes for).

I love steaming vegetables and seasoning them lightly, but I really love making soups and stews with lots of herbs, experimenting, trying to find just the right combination. After all, cooking is alchemy, not a science.

What are your favorite herbs and spices to cook with?
