Herbal Travels: Spending the Day with Jekka McVicar

In the second part of my visit to Jekka's Herb Farm, located outside Bristol, England, we had lunch catered by Berry Blue using recipes from Jekka's Herb Cookbook. I had the Beef Kofta Tagine, Jekka's Bergamot and Couscous Salad, and pita bread with her Mint and Yoghurt Dip.

It was very flavorful, and as you can see a beautiful presentation made it that much more delicious. Then my English herbal companion and I each had a cupcake made with orange sponge cake and topped with basil frosting. We couldn't share—I wonder why!

Another reason to splurge on Jekka's new cookbook is because of its beautiful illustrations, which have been done by her daughter, Hannah. The clean, crisp illustrations wedded with delicious comfort foods is the perfect match.
