A staple of French cooking, fines herbes are a blend of fresh finely minced parsley, chives, tarragon and chervil. Fines herbes (no not a typo) are typically added at the end of the cooking process or dusted over the final product to preserve their flavor. Use fines herbes in eggs, soups, salads, potatoes and poultry dishes.
