Herbes de Provence

shantihhh's picture
One of my favourite herb mixtures is Herbes de Provence, a classic herb blend using fresh or dried herbs. This mixture is very popular in France. It is used for many dishes every day in a French kitchen. Each area of France will have it's own variation of Herbes de Provence. Some will contain lavender while others will adamantly decline it's inclusion. I happen to love both the fragrance and flavour of the lavender. Thyme usually dominates the taste produced by the herb mixture. Provençal cooking often uses these fragrant Herbes de Provence, garlic, and olive oil on meats, pizza, soups, on seafood, veggies, everything.
  Dried oregano 3 Tablespoon
  Dried thyme 3 1⁄2 Tablespoon

  Dried sage 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Dried crushed rosemary 1 1⁄2 Teaspoon, crushed

When you are driving in the country side of Southern France you will be captivated by the aroma of field herbs wafting through the air. When wandering local village open air markets you will undoubtedly be tempted by several herb purveyors with their lovely displays of Herbes de Provence - often bagged in Provençal prints.
