EP Series: Herbs & Spices(Event Announcement )

Hi friends,
'EP Series :Herbs & Spices' is going to be a monthly event to know our herbs & spices better.There are a wide range of herbs & spices starting from the simplest ones to the rarely used ones.The theme herbs & spices is vast and we can't cover it in just a month event.So,I have chosen a herb & a spice to make it easier for a month.And there are many hidden recipes with these herbs & spices,so I just want to bring them together under one roof so that it becomes easier for us to browse these recipes.The recipe can be from any continent and usage of both herb & spice together in one recipe is also not required,either of the two can be used.But that should be one of the main ingredients strictly (not the ones used for garnish and tempering).All this is possible only by your support and interest,friends.I also take the privilege in inviting all my other fellow bloggers who are interested in guest hosting the event for a month with their own selected herb & spice for that month unless its already used or is already booked.Starting from tomorrow,1st March -31st March,am hosting the event at my Erivum Puliyum space,& you guys put on your unique aprons & send in your entries right away to share & learn better !!

FOR THE HOSTS INTERESTED-


-The event runs for 1 full month starting from the 1st -last day of the month.
-You can choose your interested herb & spice for the month,your own discretion,just make sure that you chose one herb & one spice for the month.
-Announce the event at your space a day before the starting date and add in the above logo.It would be nice if you leave a note to link my event announcement page as well along with your event announcement page
-Do drop me a line at julstreat(at)gmail(dot)com if you are interested to host for a month and specifying the herb & spice too so that we can know at the earliest & confirm the months.
-The link to the round up of event should be sent to me so that I can publish it in the round up page calender at my space too,(The link is here).
-The awards can be your given at your own discretion.
