A gift for cooks who enjoy discovering new flavors and for lovers of fine Mediterranean ingredients. Experimenting with these essential herbs and spices that taste so different from what most people are used to will be a pleasure for both beginners and experienced cooks.
This set contains:
Oregano from Taygetus: Greece happens to be where the most praised varieties come from and Mount Taygetus is home to the most popular of all Greek oreganos. Pungent and peppery, this is what we call all-purpose oregano here at Daphnis and Chloe.
Sage Leaves: Woody and refreshing, more vigorous than typical sage. Popular as an infusion and as a seasoning, this variety makes a mark even when used in tiny quantities. Brings a balance to strong flavors such as pork or butter.
Thyme Flowers: Flowery and slightly piquant. Our harvesters select the buds one by one, following an industrious process that allows you to revive the aromas right when needed, by rubbing them with your fingers just before use.
Bay Leaves: Praised for their incredible balsamic fragrance these bay leaves come from a small farm facing the Ionian Sea, where trees grow in an idyllic setting pretty similar to the one where god Apollo fell in love with the nymph Daphne!
