Seasonal Ingredient of the Week: Basil
As summer heads our way, we can't help but daydream of somewhere a little more green than London - if we want to get specific then the daydream is pretty much always an idyllic farmhouse in the mediterranean where you while away your days cooking with fresh produce from the garden. And if there was a smell to go with the daydream, it would undoubtedly be fresh basil. The herb of choice for our summer dining, there's nothing fresh basil doesn't enhance - whether it's fresh salads, homemade pasta or an afternoon cocktail. Here's a few of our favourite basil recipes from across the web for some hazy-summer-day inspiration.
