Types Of Herbs
1.Fine Herbs or French Quatuor

This is a group of four fine herbs, chives, tarragon, chervil and parsley. They are chopped together until the board on which you are working starts to barely turn green.
2.Herbs De Provence

Is a mixture of rosemary, thyme, and savory. These herbs can be found growing wild in the Provencal garrigue the natural underforest of Provence. These three herbs plus the four fine herbs, plus mint and maybe some lavender flowers make up Herbs De Provence. If you make your own mix be sure to balance your combination so one flavor does not dominate the mix.

3.Bouquet Garni

Is a small bunch of herbs, bay leaf, parsley stems and thyme that is either tied together with kitchen string or tied together in cheese cloth for soups, stews, gravies, sauces or stocks. Using just string without the cheesecloth really releases the whole bouquet garni flavor.
4.Flavor Booster

Mushroom Powder: Mushroom powder, made from driedmushrooms, can be used to reinforce the mushroom taste in soups and sauces. One can use any dried mushroom, such as shiitake, porcini. Prepare it as needed. Do not keep it around as bugs enjoy this flavorful powder. Throw the dried mushroom of your choice into the blender and blend until fine.
