Cooking with herbs is an easy way to infuse a recipe with flavour.
If you are not sure where to start, below are Renshia Manuel’s suggestions on which herbs to grow, and how to cook with them.
Manuel is the founder of Growbox, a social entrepreneurship company that manufactures portable grow boxes made from recycled pallets for people living in disadvantaged areas to grow vegetables sustainably.
