What is it?

A blend of dried herbs that thrive in the Mediterranean climate of Provence in southern France. Herbes de Provence usually includes thyme, summer savory, basil, marjoram, rosemary, and lavender. Some blends may also contain dried bay leaves, sage, and sometimes even cracked fennel seed (though technically speaking, the last isn’t an herb).

The use of herbes de Provence isn’t limited to the Mediterranean region, however; it’s a kitchen staple throughout France, probably because its flavor is so versatile. It goes smashingly with everything from roasted lamb and potatoes to zucchini, eggplant, and tomatoes. It’s especially delicious with chicken.

Herbes de Provence is best added to dishes before or during cooking, to give the flavors time to infuse.

Don’t have it?

Substitute equal amounts of the component herbs that you do have on hand.

How to choose:

Herbes de Provence is sold in the spice section of many well-stocked grocery stores. If it’s not in your market, you can also make your own.
