What are soft herbs?
‘Soft’ herbs are delicate annuals with soft or fleshy stems. Since they have a milder flavour, they are often added at the end of cooking to retain flavour. These also tend to go well uncooked in salads or used as a garnish. Examples of these would be basil, coriander, dill and parsley.
What are hard herbs?
‘Hard’ herbs have woody stems and tougher leaves. These herbs are hardier and keep their flavour throughout prolonged cooking, which is why they are generally added at the beginning and mostly removed before serving. Hard herbs include bay, rosemary, thyme and sage.
What chillies do we provide?
Chillies or chilli peppers are a part of the nightshade family and are used to add heat to food. Depending on the variety, chillies can be very hot or even mild enough to be sweet. Some of the commonly used chillies include Jalapeños and bird’s eye, but we supply a lot more too.
What are our other ingredients?
In addition to herbs and chillies, there are a variety of other ingredients that add flavour, colour and visual appeal to food. Whether it’s ginger to add that earthy heat to your meals, or edible flowers to garnish a fancy cocktail, we’ve got you covered.
