Fresh herbs are having a renaissance, with hardly a day going by in the food world without someone advocating a particular dish stuffed with delicate greens.
It’s about time too. For some reason we lost our way with herbs and while dried are all very well, nothing beats the taste and smell of fresh. Storage appears to be the main reason for shunning fresh cut but there have been leaps and bounds in packaging, with the latest twist coming from Nature’s Flavours, which is using Modified Atmosphere Packaging (MAP) to bring the best fresh cut herbs to consumers.
To raise awareness of the benefits of MAP, Nature’s Flavours’ parent company R&G Fresh Herbs is offering shoppers the chance to win a year’s supply of herbs delivered to the lucky recipient’s door each month.
The competition includes a selection of bestselling cookbooks so the winner can make best use of their new ingredients. For a chance of winning, just sign up to the Nature’s Flavours mailing list at www.naturesflavours.co.uk.
