Chefs given tips on herb freshness

Cookery writer advises chefs to freshen old herbs with ice baths

Home chefs looking to breathe new life into their culinary herbs and green vegetables have been given advice by cookery writer Noelle Carter.

Writing for the LA Times, Ms Carter advised chefs to give their limp greens and herbs, such as coriander, parsley and basil, and ice bath to "perk them up".

People were advised to take their greens or herbs and put them into a large bowl of ice water and shake them around.

"A minute or two should do the trick," explains the expert. "A quick toss in an ice bath can also help to clean the greens, dislodging bits of dirt."

Top london chef Yotam Ottolenghi recently extolled herbs as adding "beauty and luxury" to recipes.

"For me, every food can be special. I always think you can add beauty and luxury to a dish by adding lots of herbs to it," he commented.
