The right time to add herbs

The right time to add herbs
Herbs vary in terms of when they can be added to a dish. Some herbs like bay, thyme or oregano can be added at the beginning of the cooking process and they will flavour the whole dish. Others like parsley, chervil and basil should only be added at the end as they lose their flavour if cooked for a long time. If you are not sure, add the herb at the end. When using fresh herbs in dips or sauces allow a few hours for the flavours to develop but if using herbs in a salad add them at the end of the salad making and leave for about 10 minutes.
