Bouquet garni

The French term for a selection of herbs tied together or in a bag. Traditionally a sprig of thyme and parsley with a bay leaf. Used to flavour soup, casseroles etc. Always remove before serving. Although herbs have been used in this way in Britain since medieval times, there has never been a name to describe them.

The photo shows a version that also includes celery & marjoram. See our 'Recipe' section
