Thyme is widely used in French, Italian, Spanish and Mexican cuisine. It is a perfect addition to your sauces, soups and stews. Italians love it in home-made pizza or lasagna.
Use dried thyme sparingly as it has a strong aromatic flavour.
Perfect with: pan-fried potatoes, a dish of lentils, tomato or carrot soup, poultry or game dishes (grilled beef, rabbit, pheasant, mutton, duck…).
Dried thyme goes well with basil, garlic, lavender, onions, rose petals, oregano and parsley.
Thyme has been used as an aromatic herb in cooking since Ancient times, Dioscorides (1st century) and Hippocrates (460-370 B.C. ) mentioned it in their works. It was the Romans who brought thyme to England. This Mediterranean herb was probably introduced to Central Europe in the Middle Ages by Benedictine monks.
