Cole & Mason Sage
Eat our Sage with a pork dish. Sage and pork are a classic combination for a reason. Sage is bold, aromatic flavour punches through the grease and brings the best out of the rich meat. Mix sage with roasted potato and chorizo to bring in something a little different alongside your pork chops.
Why not try creating something different in the summer. Peaches don't end up on the barbeque very often. But when they do, coating them with bit of olive oil mixed with sage and black pepper makes them a surprising summer dessert. And for an Italian-style al fresco dinner, fry up some sage butter to pour into fresh pasta with mushrooms.
Sage is native to the Mediterranean, but the British have long since made it their own. Sage and onion stuffing, Lincolnshire sausages – some British favourites that would be unrecognisable without sage.
It grows best in well-drained soil, protected from the cold and rain. But the English have a long-standing alternative to this theory – they say sage grows best in households where a woman calls the shots.
