There is no better way to try and beat the Texas heat than start by planning a kitchen garden for your home. Our very own Chef Sebastian will be giving a presentation at It’s About Thyme in Austin, TX on September 25th at 2 pm. He will give his own advice paired with the experts at It’s About Thyme on how to produce a striving home garden. Texas has some of the richest soils, but you have to keep in mind of the drought conditions.
Chef will also be giving a cooking demonstration with the herbs that you could choose to grow in your garden. If you don’t have the green thumb you wish you had, you can still use the wonderful recipes by shopping at your local farmer’s market. Fresh herbs can take any dish to the next level and give it explosive flavor.
If you are not available to join Chef Sebastian for his presentation you can look into joining us for our ever popular spring cooking schools Cooking with Fresh Herbs and BBQ with Fresh Herbs. We have to have faith that this drought and heat can’t last forever! Keep a view to the horizon and dream of cooler and moister rich days to come.

Texas Hill Country Gets Rain!!
After a long and horrifically hot and dry summer, the Texas Hill Country was relieved with three days of evening showers. This is picture of our front porch during one of the wonderful showers.
