Fines Herbes

This classic blend of finely minced herbs originated in France. It is a combination of fresh delicately flavored herbs and added to raw dishes or at the very end of a dish's cooking time so as not to dissipate the essential oils. Fines Herbes work well in egg dishes like omelets or quiches and in sauces and butters. Makes a wonderful salad dressing when mixed with oil and vinegar (3:1 oil to vinegar) or mayonnaise.

The combination of herbs can vary with availability and the chef's preference. The classic version is an equal proportion of freshly minced parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil (or thyme).
