This Italian spice blend is a blend of 5 herbs and spices that together transform your most classic dishes into tasty recipes with the flavours of Italy.
It is composed of :
In addition to being used as a spice for spaghetti, this Italian spice blend can also be used in French cuisine, particularly for Mediterranean and Provençal recipes.
David Vanilla's choice: Traditionally, an Italian blend is made up of 5 herbs. I chose to add a little niora pepper to bring a slightly smoky flavour and a very light spicy note that will please even the most sensitive palates.
The aromatic plants in my Italian spice have evergreen foliage. They can therefore be harvested according to the blends or needs. An early morning harvest is preferable to preserve all their flavours.
Good to know: It is advisable not only to cut the leaves of aromatic plants, but also to take their branches.
Garlic and onion are two of the ingredients in my Italian spice blend. Although they are cousins, they differ in shape: garlic is composed of a head and cloves, onion of a round fruit.
The onion is used as a vegetable and as a condiment.
Italians have been fond of aromatic herbs since the Republican era. At that time, they made a sauce, the garum, very similar to the Asian nuoc mam.
It is important to know that Italian cuisine as we know it today is inspired by many foreign culinary traditions: Arab, Slavic, Austrian, Amerindian, Berber...).
Italy itself is home to a variety of culinary influences within its own territory. Also, the blends of Italian spices and herbs vary from region to region and even from family to family.
Aromatic plants and chilli pepper all have benefits for our health:
If our Italian spice blend is a precious ally in the preparation of refined meals, it will perfectly delight the taste buds of young and old in everyday cooking. So don't hesitate to sprinkle half a teaspoon of it, just before serving, on your pasta dishes, risottos, homemade pizzas, as well as in a ratatouille or any meat or vegetable dish based on tomatoes.
It can also shine on a salad or potato dishes.
This blend has the particularity of delivering warm and slightly spicy flavours. It can be used on raw food or at the end of cooking to preserve the aromas of the herbs that compose it.
This blend of herbs also goes wonderfully well with herbs from Provence or my Pizza spice blend. It is ideal to concoct a 100% Italian menu for your guests.
Sprinkle it on your tomato bruschettas or fried squid à la romana to give them taste and character. They also sublimate your antipasti. Try making elvers à la Pisana in the style of Chef Alain Ducasse.
My Italian spice mix is also excellent with meats. You'll tell me more after tasting a bresaola carpaccio or a truffle braciola.
Added to your fish, it flavours sea bream, sole... Finally, it brings a Mediterranean note to your vegetables and pasta.
