Herbes de Provence
Herbes de Provence is a blend of herbs native of the southeast region in France. These herbs are a classic in Provençal cuisine, but it wasn’t until 1970 that they were packaged together and commercialized as a blend. Our delicious blend contains Summer Savory, Mexican oregano, Rosemary, Marjoram, Parsley flakes, French Tarragon, Basil, and Fennel Seeds. These flavors and aroma pair flawlessly to bring a little bit of Provençal lands to your dishes.
Herbes de Provence: Flavor Profile
Everything will taste a little bit fancier when using this blend. Even famous cook and French cuisine lover Julia Child was a big fan of this ensemble; in fact, she was one of the first people to coin the term ‘Herbs de Provence’ in her famous recipe Poulet Saute aux Herbes de Provence.
In the mixture, Summer Savory adds the peppery, herbal flavor and sweet pine aroma, while Mexican oregano provides a sweeter, anise-like taste; Rosemary shines with its woodsy flavor and marjoram rounds it all with its delicate herbaceous taste. Parsley, French Tarragon, and Basil add the freshness and Fennel Seeds, the last punch of taste.
