for a life worth living
At my cooking class on Tuesday, Sept 17, 2013 I will discuss and have a recipe on Basil.  Basil was once believed to have magical powers.  I was considered by ancient people to be an elixir of love and a charm.  Romans sought its healing properties  and used it to aid digestion and counteract poisons.
While basil dates back to Biblical times, when it was seen growing around Christ's tomb, some cultures associated it with hatred and misfortune while others regarded it as a love token.  I guess it depends on a person's outlook on life.  Basil is much too yummy to be associated with hatred in my book.
