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:
1)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.
2)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.
3)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!
4)Smoked Chili Flakes: It's the slow-smoking that makes our "not that spicy" chili flakes so special
5)Fragrant Fennel Seeds: Probably the finest you've ever seen or tasted. They come from a family farm in central Greece
6)Rosemary Leaves: Hand-harvested from a small organic farm, ideal for home-ground spice blends and yummy roasts
