Product: Organic Bouquet Garni
Description: Our organic bouquet garni herbs are soil association approved and steam sterilised to maintain their freshness and flavour. 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. Traditionally 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: A kitchen staple in many restaurants and kitchens for adding flavour to stocks, stews and sauces, using bundles of herbs in culinary recipes has been a part of cooking for centuries, however, the first reference to them being called a ‘bouquet garni’ wasn’t until the mid-17th century. When a French chef, Pierre de Lune, author of the book ‘Le nouveau cuisinier’ coined the term to describe a selection of fragrant herbs he added to his culinary creations which included chives, thyme, dried cloves, chervil and parsley which he wrapped in a slice of bacon. The garni was soon copied and tweaked by chefs throughout the world, and variations on de Lune’s theme have appeared over the years as well as variations in the ingredients additions include celery, garlic, fennel, orange & lemon peel, sage, rosemary and tarragon.
Ingredients: Marjoram, Parsley, Bay Leaves & Winter Thyme.
