A fragrant wild rosemary from the garrigue.

The words of Olivier Roellinger

Rosemary is often found in marinades for game, but I often use it to season grilled and roasted fish by sprinkling it inside the whole fish. I also enjoy it…on baked apples or apricots with a dash of lemon juice and a dab of salted butter. The flavor combination is perfect !

Story

This wild rosemary that grows in the Languedoc Roussillon garrigue is a pungent variety with camphor notes. Rosemary is a blue-flowered shrub that is native to the Mediterranean coasts. Its Latin name, 'rosmarinus officilanis,' evokes morning dew or, more specifically, seaside dew according to poets. During ancient times, rosemary was considered a sacred plant and used as a symbol of love and remembrance in many rituals. Rosemary is also a medicinal herb that was grown in abbey and monastery gardens during the Middle Ages. Its fragrant foliage gradually made it into culinary use and it continues to enchant cooks all over Europe.
