This aromatic herb has been cultivated since ancient times for its medicinal properties. It is now at the heart of Mediterranean cuisine.
With its refreshingly herbaceous taste, mint enhances the flavour of baked dishes such as a traditional Briami made with potatoes, eggplant, tomatoes, and zucchini. Mint adds flavour to tabbouleh, kebabs, tagine, or a salad made with oranges or tomatoes and cucumbers. It also marries deliciously with chocolate for refreshing desserts like ice cream, cakes, mousse, and fruit salad. Excellent when infused or in flavoured water, it is greatly appreciated for its digestive properties.
