This is an almost mythical herb mix traditionally made with herbs that grow wild throughout Provence. There, it is added to everything from soup to fresh goat cheese; it echoes the landscape on the plate, evoking the hot, rugged landscape, the delicate villages perched atop hills.. I make my own blend of these herbs and use it fresh during the summer, then am sure to dry some for winter as well, when I want the sun on my palate.

ASTUCE: To dry these herbs, I put them outside IN THE SHADE, so they dry with the hot breeze of summer. Once dried, store them in an air-tight container in a dark, cool spot.
