Herbes de Provence is a tour of delicate flavors. This classic blend from the South of France for country cooking, also known as Provençal herbs, is floral, flavorful, fruity & fresh.
There are as many mixtures of Herbes de Provence as there are ways to use it. Ours is a purist mixture, with a very unique and delicious flavor from a special combination of hand-blended (mixed together, but not ground) thyme, basil, summer savory, oregano, and rosemary, with a hint of marjoram, that represents the bounty and fragrance of the region. And it makes everything taste heavenly.
Herbes de Provence is used to add the flavor of the French countryside with ease and simplicity instead of using individual herbs. These herbs are commonly used as a dry rub to season grilled and roasted meats and as a seasoning in roasted chicken, baked fish and seafood, as well as in soups, gravies and stews, and vegetable dishes.

❖ Ingredients: thyme, basil, summer savory, oregano, rosemary & marjoram.
Did you know… Marjoram (an herb in the oregano family) was referred to as the “Joy of the Mountains” by the Greeks and celebrated throughout the Mediterranean for its flavor, fragrance and medicinal values. If wild marjoram grew on a grave, it was thought to bring happiness to the departed. Both the Greeks and Romans adorned young couples with a marjoram crown and in ancient Egypt, the herb was offered upon altars to the Egyptian deities.
To make a remarkable olive oil seasoning dip, mix 2 tablespoons Classic OLIVE-OIL BREAD DIPPING Seasoning with ½ cup of your favorite extra virgin olive oil. Quick Tip: For best flavor gently heat oil with bread dipper for 30-60 seconds in microwave or on the stove top. You can of course easily adjust this with more or less seasoning to suite the tastes of your friends and family. We like to mix this and let it set for about 30 minutes prior to using as that allows the seasonings to fully marry with the olive oil. Serve hunks of crusty french bread around little ramekins of this signature blend paired with a top notch olive oil and watch it disappear!
