    The essence of Provencal cooking. Herbes de Provence is a blend of summer herbs common to southern France, wonderful in Mediterranean and French dishes. Rub on kabobs, chicken, lamb or white fish before grilling or baking. Add Herbes de Provence to roasted potatoes and grilled vegetables. Whisk into soups, stews, sauces and salad dressings for extra Provencal flavor. Blend into pizza crust, bread and rolls. Mix Herbes de Provence with cooking oil prior to cooking so as to infuse the flavor into the cooked food. Sprinkle onto the grill. Add a pinch or two of Herbes de Provence to the coals of the grill when hot to infuse the smoke with extra flavor. Mixed from: savory, fennel, thyme, rosemary and lavender.
