In Provence, summer fields are filled with lavender, unfolding along the coast. It is no wonder, then, that dried lavender made it’s way into traditional Provencal dishes and blends, including Herbes de Provence, a blend we’ve included in this month’s box. This mix of dried lavender, thyme, savory, marjoram, rosemary and other dried herbs, typically gathered along the Provence countryside, are now globally known. We use this blend to cook an easy, summer inspired, grilled garlic bread, but we also love this blend on grilled vegetables or in a light summer pasta dish.
HERBES DE PROVENCE
This simple, yet elegant blend of dried herbs and lavender buds were bundled in the Provencal countryside and can turn basic meals into a flavor packed, dinner party level dish.
FLEUR DE SEL
The harvesting of Fleur de Sel took place for centuries in the famous French salines of Guérande in Brittany.
