Bouquet Garni Recipe

Although traditionally made with a sprig of thyme and parsley with a bay leaf, the addition of celery, plus a sprig of fresh marjoram/oregano adds a lot of interest to the finished dish.

Marjoram, parsley and thyme can easily be grown in pots or in a window box and while being decorative also smell marvellous.

Bouquet garni are used to flavour soup, casseroles etc. - but always remove them before serving.

A modern refinement is to use a different blend of herbs for red meats and game to that used for poultry and fish - these are offered by - and bring extra character to each dish.
