My friend Stephanie called me last week with an emergency: She has two basil plants each the size of a bush and wanted the leaves to find a good home.
So I stopped by one afternoon after work and took home a quart-size bag of classic Italian Genovese basil, with big, floppy green leaves, and a smaller bag of spicy Thai basil, with smaller leaves tinged with purple.
