Aromatico italiano: Crushed Basil from Kotányi — with undertones of cloves, pepper and mint, meticulously dried and rich in essential oils.

An herb fit for a king

With its understated sweet, warming flavor, it’s no wonder basil has earned itself the nickname of the royal herb. Basil is a staple ingredient in Italian dishes such as pizza and pasta, and also makes a delicious addition to vegetables, soups, fish and meat.

Distinguished but delicate

Basil quickly loses its wonderful aromatic flavor during cooking, and you should also avoid storing it in excessively dry conditions. To get the most out of its wonderful aromatic flavor, it should be exposed to as little heat as possible and only added to food shortly before serving.

The delicate touch from Kotányi

Basil is more sensitive than almost any other herb. If not dried extensively with enough care, it can lose almost all of its flavor. That’s why we source all of our basil from trusted suppliers that meet our strict criteria.
