The leaves of the noble laurel in the ancient world personified wisdom and omnipotence. The Romans believed that the laurel was sent down to earth by Zeus, and therefore crowned the head of the heroes with a wreath of laurel leaves. Known for its healing properties, the laurel has gained worldwide fame not in pharmaceuticals, but in the kitchen. It is worth adding it to any hot dish 5-10 minutes before cooking, and the taste of familiar products will acquire a completely new spicy flavor. Laurel is indispensable in sauces and for preserving vegetables and meat.
Use in soups, sauces, marinades, dishes of meat, poultry and game, baking.
