Join us for a summer-long celebration of aromatic herbs. Sample dishes prepared by chefs from Wave Hill exclusive caterer Great Performances, including iced lemon-verbena infusion with clover honey, sautéed zucchini and summer squashes with lemon thyme and sea salt, and basic Southeast Asian-style lemongrass broth. Then stroll in the garden with a horticultural interpreter to see the featured ingredients in their summer glory. Lemon thyme, lemon verbena and lemon grass are just a few herbs that mimic the scent and flavor of fresh lemons. Learn how to grow lemon-scented herbs and pucker up for recipes flavored with their zesty essence. Tour the Herb Garden afterwards to see these herbs “in the leaf.”
