Your favourite household herbs are perfect partners for desserts too.
The delicate aroma of rosemary in shortbread is an absolute winner. Perfect with a cuppa – don’t knock it till you try it!
This pretty herb not only makes a beautiful cake decoration – add lemon thyme to panna cotta for a distinctive flavour kick.
A favourite in Asian stir-fries for its strong fragrance, add this aromatic herb to vanilla ice-cream for a delicious summery twist.
This readily available herb gives your desserts a fresh lift. Ideal for heavier cakes, in chocolate mousse or infused in a syrup for fruit.

Coffee Lovers, Try This!
Put leftover black coffee into ice trays and freeze. Then add the ice cubes to a freshly brewed cup of mocha or latte for an extra kick! Instant coffee works well with this. We tried it out in a cup of the new OLDTOWN White Coffee 3 in 1 Mocha, and it hits the right spot on a hot, sunny day.
OLDTOWN White Coffee 3 in 1 Mocha, $6.80 (pack of 15 sachets), is available in leading supermarkets.
