A new Basil Friend Chef Diana Casares

I am so excited to introduce my friend Chef Diana Casares…

I met Chef Casares at one of my cooking classes at Sur la Table.  She taught a delicious class on cooking the Perfect Steak.

Since then we have become friends and we are always talking about Basil.  I take fresh Basil to give to the Chef’s to use in their cooking classes.  I love all of the delicious recipes they use it in.

Chef Casares is like me, she names her Basil children. When Bebe was sick, we had to nurse her back to good health and as you can see, Bebe is doing wonderful now!

Here’s a little big about Chef Diana Casares and how she Loves Her Basil:
