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, especially in Mediterranean and Provençal recipes.
David Vanilla's choice: Traditionally, an Italian blend is composed of 5 herbs. I chose to add a little niora pepper to bring a slightly smoky flavour and a very light note of spiciness 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 your 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 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.
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, 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: Arabic, Slavic, Austrian, Amerindian, Berber...).
Italy itself has 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 valuable ally in the preparation of refined meals, it will delight the taste buds of young and old alike 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 also knows how to 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 it contains.
This blend of herbs also goes wonderfully well with herbs from Provence or my spice blend for pizza. 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 the way Chef Alain Ducasse does.
My Italian spice blend is also excellent with meats. You'll tell me more after tasting a bresaola carpaccio or a truffle braciola.
Added to your fish, it flavors sea bream, sole... Finally, it brings a Mediterranean note to your vegetables and pasta.
