Herbs S ome herbs present a richer flavor in dried form.   The concentration of oils in Oregano and the mix Bouquet Grani  makes them a better choice for slow cooked dishes. Tip: Finish slow cooked dishes with fresh herbs.                              They will add delicate top notes, color and texture

Creating Blends Spice blending is an art that combines flavors into   Top -  Middle - Base  Notes (much like perfuming)   Most of the blends I make tend to fall into these categories: Balanced Blend:   Elements mesh to create one key flavor  Cascading Blend: Flavors emerge as you taste                           Accent Blend:      Built around a defining flavor note
