Fines Herbes Seasoning Mix Recipe


Fine Herbes classic French herb seasoning mix is easy to make at home. Make it fresh or used dried herbs and store it for future use. Recipe is easily multiplied, but I recommend making only as much of the dried version as you will use within 1 month so it remains as fresh as possible.

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Total Time: 10 minutes


  • 1 Tablespoon chopped tarragon
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chervil
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped chives
  • 1 Tablespoon chopped parsley


Using Fresh Herbs:
Combine tarragon, chervil, chives, and parsley. Add fresh fines herbes at the end of the cooking process to preserve their flavor.

Using Dried Herbs:
Combine the dried herbs. Place in a glass jar and seal tightly. Store in a cool, dark place up to 4 months.

Yield: about 1/4 cup

Note: Marjoram, savory or watercress are often added to the fines herbes seasoning mix.
