Product Description

Course Outline:

The Culinary Herbs course focuses on the herbs used in cooking and how each of them is useful either to enhance the taste of the dish or its nutritional/medicinal values. This is an excellent course for chefs or for people working in catering industries and restaurants.
Most people today use a few herbs here and there in their cooking; but with greater knowledge comes a whole world of culinary possibilities that you may not have even considered.
Professional cooks and chefs can achieve so much more when they understand the way different cultivars of a herb can have subtle differences in flavour. Similarly, flavours can change depending upon where the herbs are grown, the time of year, the speed of growth, the parts that are harvested and the time of year.

Learn how to identify and successfully grow scores of common and uncommon edible herbs. Develop your skills and experience the delights of cooking adventurous new recipes with herbs. Learn drying and other methods of preserving flavour (e.g., herb oils, salts, vinegars).
