France / Artemisia dracunculus
This herb is indispensable in classic French cooking, and the flavors reveal themselves in layers. The flavor first presents a subtle anise note followed by a peppery high-point that lingers with an almost vermouth-like finish. Tarragon is a great flavor choice for fish, chicken and vegetable dishes. It marries well with wine and shallots and makes a fine flavored vinegar.
