Bouquet Garni


This is a bunch of herbs tied into a bundle.  it is used in sauces and braised dishes to impart flavor.  It is removed at the end of the cooking time and must never be served with a dish.  The size of the bouquet garni depends on the number of portions in the recipe.

A number of bouquets garnis should be prepared fresh each time you need it.

To make a bouquet garni, tie with string into a neat bundle 6-8 cm long the following:

  • 3 or 4 parsley stalks
  • 1 bayleaf
  • 1 sprig thyme
  • surrounded with 2 or 3 pieces of celery
