Basil, tarragon, and chervil bring a bright sweetness, countered by the earthy notes of thyme and rosemary, while fennel and French lavender add a wonderful floral note. This blend is ideal for vegetables, especially eggplant and zucchini, and it holds up well to heartier dishes like braised rabbit or roast chicken.
