Cultivation area: Mountainous Corinth
Scientific name: Thymus vulgaris
Pairing: In Mediterranean cuisine, thyme is a popular seasoning for lamb dishes. Its slightly floral flavor lightens the sometimes gamy taste of lamb. It also pairs well with tomatoes, and beans. Thyme is the main ingredient in the classic herb combinations “Bouquet Garni” and “Herbes de Province”. These herb blends are frequently used to flavor meat, stews, and soups.
