From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Fines herbes is a combination of herbs that forms a mainstay of Mediterranean cuisine. The ingredients of fines herbes are fresh parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil[1]. These "fine herbs" are not the pungent and resinous herbs that appear in a bouquet garni – which, unlike fines herbes, release their flavour in long cooking. Marjoram, cress [2], cicely[2] or lemon balm[2] may be added to fines herbes. The marjoram and tarragon may be dried.
