Product: Bouquet Garni
Description: The term bouquet garni means ‘garnished bouquet’, usually a garnish visually enhances a dish, but they can be used to enhance the flavour as well which is the purpose of a bouquet garni. Today a bouquet garni consists of a selection of herbs tied together into a bundle or faggot, our bouquet garni blend consists of 4 herbs; thyme, marjoram, bay leaves and parsley which are finely chopped for ease so that they can be added direct to the recipe without the need of removing the herbs.
Brief History: Using bundles of herbs in culinary recipes has been a part of cooking for centuries, but the first reference to them being called a bouquet garni wasn’t until 1656, where a French chef Pierre de Lune author of ‘Le nouveau cuisinier’ coined the term to describe a selection of fragrant herbs including chives, thyme, cloves, chervil and parsley which he wrapped in a slice of bacon. The garni was soon copied in tweaked by chefs throughout the world and ages, and variations on de Lune’s theme over the years as well as the ingredients he originally used have included of celery, garlic, fennel, orange & lemon peel, sage, rosemary and tarragon.
Ingredients: Marjoram, Parsley, Bay Leaves & Winter Thyme.
