The Profile


Fresh rosemary is a valuable herb in the kitchen as it not only offers bold, distinctive flavor to recipes, it can be used to garnish items beautifully as it holds up well at room temperature for lengthy periods of time. Rosemary’s versatility not only imparts bold flavor to grilled chicken, beef & pork, the scent perfumes appetizers, dips, relishes, soups & side dishes flawlessly. Beyond the table, the sprigs can be paired with seasonal blooms such as roses making it a lovely alternative to traditional greenery selections. When used as a focal point to wedding boutonnieres, the miniature herb bouquets not only add a fresh element but a delicious fragrance, too. As summer approaches, pair the sprigs with narrow leaf zinnia, Queen Anne’s lace & shasta daisies for simple, sweet arrangements that can brighten a host of casual outdoor gatherings.

How To Navigate & Garnish With Fresh Rosemary

Rosemary is a perennial herb with Mediterranean roots that can be used to season & garnish foods but it also offers many health benefits. The evergreen leaves have been known to reduce inflammation & protect the immune system plus it is high in vitamins A, C & B6. It has a strong, astringent taste which makes it an excellent choice to use when grilling as it has the ability to compliment the bold, smoky flavors well. A little goes a long way so it’s always best to start small then add more, if desired.

The Technique

Although it darkens when cooked, a few of the leaves can be scattered over food surfaces to boost the appearance & lend additional good flavor just before serving. Be certain to set aside a few sprigs to use for this purpose as showcased in the Lemon-Ricotta Artichoke Dip. To store the herb for longer periods of time, rinse the sprigs under cool, running water then pat them dry. Roll them loosely in a paper towel & refrigerate up to a week.
