The way to a man’s heart is through his stomach.
I have conquered a place in my man’s heart.
Especially these days.
My cooking skills have improved. Everything tastes better. I thank Jamie, my love thanks me
I have been making a bouquet garni for most of our meals.
A bouquet garni is a little bundle of mixed fresh herbs that you add to the pot and let simmer. I have been adding it to all of our soups, stews, sauces and ragouts.
The most ordinary of Bolognese sauce becomes something out of this world when you let a little bouquet of herbs swimming in it.
Typical herbs for a bouquet garni are bay leaves, thyme and rosemary. I usually also add flat parsley, dragon, chives and sage. But anything goes. Just tie them all together with some butchers twine and drop in the pot.
A bunch of herbs, who would have thought they could make such a difference in how good our food tastes.
Fresh herbs are really the best invention ever. They do not only taste good, they smell divine too.
That’s why I also often put little herb bouquet on the table when making a table setting.
Good thing that herbs are plants that actually grow better when you cut them regularly.
And that’s what I do.
Ever made a bouquet garni? And what herbs do you put in it?
Got any secrets to share to conquer your man’s heart (with or without going through his stomach)?
