Herbes de Provence

Herbes de Provence
 
is the basis of French cuisine. The combination of  herbs that compriseHerbesde Provence may vary with the addition of an extra herb or two and this may be the preference of achef. However, my blend consists of French thyme, basil, oregano, rosemary, savory, fennel seeds, marjoram and French lavender. This mixture is conveniently packaged in individual filter bags and may be added to soups and stews. Be sure to discard herb filter bag after  flavor  has been extracted.

A few years ago one of my relatives wrote a book about our family's ancestry and only then did I become aware of a few interesting facts.  Her research revealed that  the original frenchman named La Caille had come from Normandy, France and settled in the island of Martinique, in the Caribbean. Subsequently, during the decree of the Spanish Medulla the family became  part of the colonization of the island of Trinidad.
