Herbes de Provence
A charming herb that smells of deep and ancient forests and fields where fantastic experiences are waiting. (We hope these experiences are unicorns. That would be awesome.) Enchanting to smell and bewildering in taste, this classic French herb mix is a must for the Francophile kitchen.
Our Herbes de Provence mixture contains rosemary, fennel, thyme, savory and lavender. The French herb mix, as with many herb blends, varies from person to person; but rosemary, thyme, and fennel are mainstays. The resulting aroma is always woodsy, floral, invigoratingly clean and bitingly fresh.
Classically, Herbes de Provence is used as a flavoring for soups, stews, and braises – particularly those with strong flavoring agents such as tomato sauce or red wine as these spices can stand their own. Add at the start of cooking for any slow cooking recipes, or quickly add to a bit of cooking oil before sautéing vegetables so that the essential oils can release adequately.
A curious note: lavender is only present in American versions of Herbs de Provence and is rarely added within France.
