Aromatics refer to the large family of herbs and spices from all over the world. They enhance dishes with their unique aromas, intensities, and flavors. Soups, sauces, stir-fries, meats, desserts: any recipe can be seasoned with a touch of herbs or spices.
Aromatic herbs come from the leaves, fresh or dried, of aromatic plants. Some herbs have a more intense taste, such as rosemary, thyme, or peppermint. Others have a lighter flavor, such as dill, basil, oregano, or parsley.
Spices are the dried parts of all the other parts of aromatic plants such as fruits, bulbs, seeds, flowers... Paprika, cinnamon, ginger, cumin, or cloves are some common spices. There are also blends of spices such as curry or chili powder.
Herbs and spices have long been used not only for the flavourful touch they bring to recipes but also for their numerous health benefits. They are rich in antioxidants and are sources of vitamins and minerals such as iron, calcium, magnesium, vitamins A, B9, C, and K1. They also have anti-infectious, diuretic, and digestive properties, to name a few.
