Been demoing herbs recently......Tarragon, dillweed, parsley lemongrass with shroom risotto.
Orange garlic tarragon dressing on a baby lettuce, fennel salad
Peanut butter, ginger, cilantro, Thai basil, jalepino, orange zest, garlic dressing on baby greens with red onions, red peppers, grapes, heart of palm, asparagus....

So any ideas for other herb demos...usually you have an hour to talk and mix and serve/eat. It is also usually NOT in a kitchen or near one.

If you're willing to make the squash ravioli in advance, you could try ravioli with (brown) sage butter. Gnocchi would be good with it, too. (I make my filling a little on the sweet/cinnamon flavored side)

Vanilla jelly???

Forgot about grain salad, havn't done them in forever.....
run through garlic oil for me....seems like you have to be really careful wiht the shelf life of that one going toxic.
I used to make wild rice with oranges, roasted pecans, sauteed red onion, roasted garlic, green onions and tarragon....great with cornish hens or duck...shoot chicken too, oh yeah seems like I made an orange tarragon viniager dressing for it too, served as a cold salad on a HOT day. Herb Days are generally in April or May so I emphasize summer foods.
Thanks guys.....

Shroom,

The cherry/vanilla jelly I warm in a pan to melt, and then toss it with bloomed wild rice and serve it with magret or venison.
Really good :)

So you take cherry jam and add a vanilla bean?
I heard vanilla is going to go sky high....typhoon in the vanilla region totally wiped out a crop, get it cheap while you can.
