Rich aroma, explosive and slightly bittersweet that is good on buttered bread, chocolate cake, as a filling on biscuits and croissants, as an accompaniment to a plate of cheese and charcuterie.

GREEK HERBS AND SPICES
As a natural product, herbs have been used since ancient times in Greece. The variety of herbs and spices in the Greek countryside gave the Greeks the ingredients to give their food a special taste and the ability to heal people. This is also evident in the famous saying of Hippocrates, the father of medicine: “Let your medicine be your food and your food your medicine” (ca. 460 – 370 BC).
The rich soil all over the country, the presence of mountains and sea as well as the warm climate, are the perfect combination for herbs to thrive and have excellent quality. Chefs from all over Europe also prefer Greek herbs that grow naturally (for example: chamomile, mountain tea, sage, basil, thyme and oregano).
