You’ve heard that fresh is best, but if you don’t have a lot of experience with herbs then you’ll probably have a few questions. Which herbs pair with which types of food? How much should I use? When do I add them to the cooking process? What should I do with the leftovers?

Although there are a few occasions when using dried herbs is recommended,cooking with fresh seems to be the preference for many chefs. They’re flavorful, make beautiful garnishes and most importantly, they’re packed with valuable nutrients and antioxidants. With a few tips and tricks you can maximize your use of fresh herbs to transform every meal into something special.

When to add fresh herbs to your cooking depends not only on the herb but also on the sort of flavor you're trying to achieve. Robust herbs like rosemary, thyme and savory can be used in longer simmering dishes.
