  4. Basil is one of the most intriguing and intoxicating scents on the plant. I would love to get some Italian basil here in Mexico. Too scared to smuggle in the seeds.

  5. I like warming up a tin of plum tomatoes and eating them on toast with basil leaves sprinkled on top. Basil and tined toms are the greatest flavour match ever.
