Jill Brand says 'Basil is one of my favourite herbs. Apart from its wonderful aroma, it has such fantastic versatility, going with so many foods - from strawberries to tomatoes. Fresh basil is so flavoursome it can be added to almost anything to transform a quick and easy week night dinner into a delicious, restaurant-worthy meal.'
