Fines herbes

Fines herbes

[feen erb, urb; Fr. feen zerb]
Fines herbes is a culinary mainstay in French cuisine. The ingredients of fines herbes are fresh parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil. These "fine herbs" are not the pungent and resinous herbs that appear in a bouquet garni – which, unlike fines herbes, release their flavour in long cooking. Marjoram, cress, cicely or lemon balm may be added to fines herbes. The marjoram and tarragon may be dried.
