Strong, slightly peppery piquancy with a slight sweet note.
Basil is mainly used in Italian and Greek cuisine. The tangy aroma of the leaves goes well with tomatoes. Basil can be combined with other Mediterranean herbs such as oregano and rosemary and is also suitable for raw food dishes, salads, soups, sauces, vegetables, fish and meat dishes.
The aromatic herb can be found in any good pesto.
Basil has a strong taste and should be dosed with caution!
