Herbes de Provence

Herbes de Provence is a simple mix of herbs one would typically associate with the flavours and cooking of the Provence region of Southeast France. There is no real prescribed mixture and so the mix may contain some or all or the following Savory, Marjoram, Rosemary, Thyme, and Oregano*. Herbes de Provence are used to flavour grilled foods such as fish and meat, as well as vegetable stews. The herbs used in Herbes de Provence are all quite robust particularly compared with the other classic French herb blend ‘Fines herbes’.

*In America Herbes de Provence often contain Lavender leaves.
