INTENSIVE, MEDITERRANEAN HERBAL MIXTURE
Aroma and use - for Mediterranean momentsThe Mediterranean herbs are extremely versatile and are perfect for popular Italian classics such as spaghetti alla napoli (with tomato sauce) or alla bolognese (with meat sauce), as well as for pizza, lasagna or the filling of tortellini. They also add a delicious touch to stir-fried and grilled meats, such as the famous Bistecca alla fiorentina (porterhouse or T-bone steak weighing up to 1300 g). Vegetable lovers can safely combine this all-round herb mixture with Mediterranean vegetables such as eggplant, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, artichokes, olives, broccoli and fennel.
A special tip: prepare an Italian minestrone, a well-known vegetable soup from Bella Italia that is ideal for vegetable fans.
The full range of flavors of the Italian herbs develop best when you add them towards the end of the cooking time. However, in some dishes they can also be cooked for longer, such as cannelloni or lasagne, which braise in the oven for up to 45 minutes. In short, our organic Italian herb mixture brings the Mediterranean feeling directly into your kitchen, even if fresh herbs are not currently available. For some herbs, like thyme, drying is actually beneficial because it intensifies their aroma.
Three delicious recipes for Italian herbs – from subtle to strong:
Folded bread with herb butter - Whether at a barbecue party, at a brunch buffet, as a starter for a Mediterranean menu or simply on its own as a snack with beer and red wine, this Mediterranean plucked bread made from yeast dough has a lot to offer. It impresses with its delicious filling, which consists of pine nuts, mozzarella, feta, spinach, chili flakes and fresh garlic.
Antipasti di verdura are perfect for a party or as a light appetizer. Thinly sliced zucchini, eggplant and peppers are first fried in olive oil. They are then allowed to marinate in a mixture of fresh olive oil and herbs. These delicious vegetable antipasti are both excellent accompaniments to meat and fish and an ideal option for vegetarians and vegans, so all guests can enjoy equally.
Can you use Italian herbs for salad dressing?
Naturally! You can let the mixture steep in the sauce for about 5 to 10 minutes to ensure that its full flavor develops. Alternatively, you can soak the herbs in a little vegetable stock or water before using them. These different methods make the Organic Italian Herb Blend a great addition to cold dishes. This means that the basil in particular comes into its own!
Here's an additional tip: You can make salad dressings in advance and store them in a sealable jar. This means it will easily stay fresh for two to three days, especially if it is a classic vinaigrette made from vinegar and ideally olive oil.
Italian herbs and herbs from Provence – what’s the difference?
Rosemary, basil, savory, oregano, thyme and bay leaves are the common ingredients in these herbal mixtures. Even in small quantities, they give Mediterranean dishes an incomparable flavor. The difference between the two is that the herbs of Provence necessarily contain blue lavender flowers, which give the aroma a floral-fresh nuance and ensure the characteristic taste of southern French cuisine. In the Italian blend, on the other hand, onions and garlic complement the spicy, fresh and warm herbal palette. Our mixture can not only refine the well-known classics, but is also ideal for modern and sophisticated dishes from Italian cuisine as well as dishes from other Mediterranean cuisines. You can easily combine the Italian herb mixture with other spices to create completely individual taste experiences!

ORIGIN AND PRODUCTION - Mediterranean taste explosions in organic qualityMost of the herbs in our organic Italian herb mixture originally originate from different regions of the world. Oregano, thyme and rosemary are authentic Mediterranean plants. Basil, garlic, onions and bay leaves, on the other hand, were once imported to southern Europe from Asia. As a versatile spice, savory is native to Africa, America, Asia and southern and eastern Europe in various species. All of these herbs are now native to Italy and play a central role in Italian cuisine.
Our herbs for the mixture are carefully harvested, dried and processed from controlled organic cultivation. Gentle processing methods preserve the flavors and ensure that you can enjoy an authentic Italian taste experience!
By the way, Italian cuisine is popular worldwide and is often considered the "mother" of fine cuisine. This is also thanks to Catherine de Medici, the future French queen. In the 16th century, she introduced forks and culinary sophistication to the Paris court, following in the culinary footsteps of the legendary Roman general and gourmet Lucullus, who once brought cherries and grapes across the Alps.
