Make it a point to purchase a different herb every week or two. Start to experiment and incorporate each particular herb into your cooking. Every time you purchase a different or new herb, taste it on its own to develop a sense of its flavor profile. Start with a herb such as dill and add it to things like scrambled eggs, steamed potatoes or even to a salad dressing.
To experiment with different herbs, make a simple dish such as Spaghetti Aglio e Olio or soft polenta (recipes below). Each time you make it, substitute different herbs. Experiment to see which herbs you prefer.
Start cooking! There are many recipes below to guide you on using fresh and/or dried herbs.
