Recipe for Herbes de Provence

One of my favorite chicken recipes is from Edna Lewis’s cookbook; In Pusuit of Flavor. It a roasted chicken rubbed with butter, then rubbed with a mix of salt, pepper, dried thyme and Herbes de Provence.  Many times I have found myself without Herbes de Provence, especially when I am out of the country. So I did some research on what exactly is in this herb mix. Well I came across many versions but my favorite is this one with lavender in it. Enjoy! Oh here is the link to my favorite roast chicken recipe from Edna Lewis. Now you can really enjoy, Bon Appetit!

  1. I don’t make the mixture myself as it is easily available everywhere in France. 🙂 Just to let you know, the herb of Provence in France doesn’t have lavender in it. I was quite surprise to find recipes with lavender in them. 🙂
