What is Terre Exotique garlic wild herb persillade?
The garlic wild herb persillade blend is composed of parsley, shallot, garlic, and wild garlic.
Parsley, whose botanical name is Petroselinum crispum or sativum, is a plant measuring between 30 and 80 centimeters in height.
This aromatic plant is part of the Apiaceae family, which also includes coriander, cumin, fennel, and carrot, for example. The Apiaceae are widespread in temperate regions and grow under a Mediterranean climate.
Garlic, whose botanical name is Allium sativum, comes from the Liliaceae family. This perennial plant is made up of a bulb formed of cloves wrapped in membranes. Garlic can grow up to one meter high.
Shallot is a bulbous plant belonging to the Amaryllidaceae family, which is cultivated as a condiment plant. The term refers to the bulb itself, which has been an integral part of French gastronomy for a long time. Shallots are harvested from late June to early August, once the foliage turns yellow and starts to fall.
Wild garlic, also called wild garlic or wood garlic, is a perennial herbaceous plant belonging to the Amaryllidaceae family like shallot. It is therefore a bulbous plant whose botanical name is Allium ursinum. Wild garlic gets its name because bears, at the end of their hibernation, search for this plant to purify themselves.
The history of persillade
In 1814, the minister and chief diplomat of King Louis XVIII, Talleyrand, asked his chef Marie-Antoine Carême, whose nickname was "the king of chefs and chef of kings", to cook snails for a dinner for Tsar Alexander I of Russia. A risky bet! Yet, the chef stuffed the snails with butter, garlic, and parsley before baking them in the oven. This dish, called "escargots à la bourguignonne", turned out to be a great success and became an emblem of French cuisine.
