Have you cooked with Fines Herbes before? Fortunately these fresh culinary herbs are easy (and rewarding) to grow in your garden.

Introduction to Fines Herbes

Fines Herbes is a traditional French blend of fresh herbs used to subtly season mild dishes. A mix of Fines Herbes contains equal amounts of finely-chopped Parsley, Chives, Tarragon, and Chervil. These delicate herbs are added to dishes such as omelettes, fish, poultry, and garden salads.

A Fines Herbes Garden

Growing your own Fines Herbes garden is a fantastic way to supply your kitchen with fresh culinary herbs. Traditional Fines Herbes are used when fresh, as the blend tends to lose the character of its flavor when dried. The freshness of the herbs is so important that Fines Herbes are generally added to cooked dishes right at the end of cooking to preserve their freshness in the finished dish.

Fines Herbes is a mix of minced Parsley, Chives, Tarragon, and Chervil. While fresh Parsley is ubiquitous in supermarkets, fresh Chives and Tarragon can be more difficult to find. Fresh Chervil can be nearly impossible to find for purchase due to the incredibly delicate foliage. Starting your own Fines Herbes garden helps ensure the freshest and most reliable supply for your kitchen. Fortunately, these culinary herbs are all easy to grow!
