Believe it or not, not all Herbes de Provence sold in the United States actually comes from Provence. An outlier in the spice industry, Burlap & Barrel partners with a farming cooperative near Avignon, in the Provence region, who grow the heirloom varieties of thyme, oregano, rosemary and savory that are dried and blended to make this true Herbes de Provence.
How to use
Herbes de Provence is a fragrant, all-purpose seasoning that appears throughout Southern French cuisine, often rubbed over roasted chicken, layered between tomatoes and eggplants in ratatouille or in marinades for goat cheese and olives. We use Burlap & Barrel’s authentic Herbes de Provence just as liberally, whether it’s sprinkled over roasted potatoes, rubbed over fish and lamb, or simmered with a big pot of cannellini beans.
