Laurel is an aromatic evergreen shrub found mainly in mountainous parts of Europe, North Africa and the Middle East. Its small leaves are used to give dishes a distinctive taste, aroma and colour.The shrub has been cultivated for hundreds of years and its fragrant properties were especially cherished in Ancient Egypt, Greece and Rome before becoming popular all over the world. Known for its woody scent, laurel can be used to infuse oil, vinegars, stews, soups and casseroles adding a unique flavour profile to any meal. It’s also often added as a finishing touch to salads or desserts; either fresh or dried according to preference. All in all it’s clear why laurel has become a perennial herbal staple!
