My latest post for NPR.org isn’t so much a story as it is a drawn-out love letter to basil, my favorite herb. It’s my first time writing for Kitchen Window, a weekly feature that focuses on a particular ingredient, cuisine or theme (it’s also usually written by people much more qualified than me).

But it was a nice change of pace — and most importantly, it gave me an opportunity to eat a lot of basil.
