The name basil comes from Latin basilicum and from Greek basilikon , meaning royal. Ocimum is the Latin word for fragrance. Its common name is believed to be an abbreviation of Basilikon phuton, Greek for "kingly herb".
Tomato sauce and pest have made basil famous, but this herb's wonderful taste and aroma will enliven so many other foods. Try it on veal, lamb, fish, poultry, white beans, pasta tomatoes, cheese, and use only fresh leaves.
