growing a garden may be in my future, I read an interesting article by Ellen Ecker Ogden about fresh herbs. The writer and designer suggests some basic pairings of food and herbs that to some might be obvious, but to me was enlightening. The dishes I prepare tend to lack a bit of flavor, so having this little cheat sheet around may prove to be quite helpful.

Fish: Dill, Tarragon, Savory, Fennel
Beef: Marjoram, Thyme, Chives
Chicken: Tarragon, Sage, Lovage
Lamb: Rosemary, Dill
Duck: Lovage, Thyme, Tarragon
Eggs: Chervil, Basil, Parsley
Soup: Lovage, Thyme, Parsley
Vegetables: Basil, Chives, Parsley
