Set of 3 Terracotta Pots with Italian Herbs
This set of three handmade and hand painted terracotta herb pots will bring a distinctly Mediterranean feel to your kitchen! Each pot contains wonderful aromatic dried herbs from Calabria in Southern Italy.
We present them carefully wrapped in a stylish Italian gift box hand tied with a bright ribbon. A gift message option is available. Please note that if we are out of stock of any item we reserve the right to substitute it with the most similar available item.
- Dried Rosemary (5g) Rosemary is one of the most popular Italian herbs and can be used to flavour so many dishes, particularly roasted and grilled meats, poultry and fish. It also goes well with pulses, especially chick peas, cannellini beans and lentils, with potatoes naturally (roast potatoes are never served without rosemary) and also aubergines, courgettes and pumpkin.
- Dried Oregano (5g) In the Calabrian markets large bouquets of Oregano fill the air with their intensive aromatic fragrance. One of those few Italian herbs that, traditionally, are almost always used dry, not fresh. Calabrian Oregano has a unique intense flavour thanks to the unusually high concentration of essential oils found in this native variety. To use simply shake the whole branch gently over your plate or pot. Oregano is great for finishing summer salads, winter stews, pizzas and bruschetta.
- Dried Marjoram (5g) This herb is similar to oregano but milder in flavour. Marjoram is particularly good with meats and seafood but can also be added to stews, sauces, salad dressings and compliments carrots, cauliflower, spinach, mushrooms and peas. Because of its sweetness marjoram is also used for crème brulee, in ice cream and fruit desserts.
