Join us for a summer-long celebration of aromatic herbs.

Sample dishes prepared by chefs from Wave Hill exclusive caterer Great Performances, then stroll in the garden with a horticultural interpreter to see the featured ingredients in their summer glory.

Licorice shares familiar flavor compounds with herbs such as anise, tarragon, wormwood (think absinthe) and even basil. Touch and taste licorice-scented herbs and discover delicious ways to use these powerful aromatics in refreshing summer recipes. On the chef’s menu: She crab soup with tarragon and Pernod, and Saffron-braised fennel.
