How to Choose Fresh Herbs

CURTIS STONE: Hey, I’m Curtis Stone, and I’ve got a tasty GMC Trade Secret for you.
Have you ever wondered how restaurants get that extra bit of flavor into their dishes? This is one of their secrets. It’s fresh herbs.
I’ve got some fresh rosemary in my hand, and down here I’ve got a beautiful pot of a bit of a variety of stuff. I’ve got a few types of basil. I’ve got some oregano, some sage, and even some thyme. And it’s great just to be able to walk out to your garden and just to pick some fresh herbs and, you know, use them for what you’re going to cook that day.
Now, it doesn’t matter if you’re going out to your garden or you’re picking them up from the grocery store. People always say to me, which type of herb do I use for my particular type of dish? Now, this is how you do it. You just grab a leaf of that herb, break it off, and just rub it between your fingers. Have a good smell of it, okay?
Now, think about what you’re going to cook. Now, I’m going to roast some chicken, so will the basil work with the chicken? Absolutely. Think about the flavors that you’re going to cook and the smell of that and you’ll get a marriage made in heaven.
That’s me. I’m Curtis Stone. And that’s your GMC Trade Secret. Enjoy.
