Herbs and Flowers: Basil

           I am here with yet another event announcement for the month of July. Yes, you guessed it right, it is "Cooking with Herbs and Flowers" an event created by  PJ . Coming to think of it we add herbs to almost all the savoury dishes that we prepare.... be it soups, salads, stir fries, subzis, curries, rice dishes , savoury breads, dips .....the list goes on and on..:)

          The star for the month is "Basil". I think most of us are very familiar with this very aromatic herb. So no need for any formal introductions from me..

          This herb speaks volumes of Italian cuisine.... lovely distinct flavour and the aroma is just wonderful....


Here are some guidelines:

1.Cook and blog about a dish which features basil. If you can't find fresh basil, use dried ones. Remember "Basil" has to be the main ingredient and not like garnish.

2. Both vegetarian and non vegetarian dishes accepted.

3.Although this series is about recipes, you are welcome to share the following : growing basil, tips on freezing or storing them, non-culinary uses that have been tried and tested by you like cosmetic uses , home remedies, crafts etc. you can also share some interesting facts about basil.

4.Link your post to this announcement page and PJ's announcement page : http://seduceyourtastebuds.blogspot.com/p/herbs-flowers-hosting-schedule.html

5.Please kindly include the logo which helps spread the word.

6.Send in as many entries as you wish. Archives are welcome...just link it with this announcement page and PJ's announcement page.

7.Last date for sending the recipes is August 15th 2011.

8.Send in your entries to kaarasaaram@yahoo.co.uk with "Herbs and Flowers:Basil" in the subject line  with the following details:

        Your name and blog name
         Recipe and Url

9.Non blogger are welcome to participate. Send your recipes to the above email id and I will post it for you in my blog.

Hi Reva,
