Mediterranean Herb Seasoning Blend FAQs

What is the purpose of Mediterranean seasoning?

Mediterranean spices are commonly used to flavor everything from soups and stews to grilled chicken and vegetables, to name a few applications. Sausages and terrines often are seasoned with these spices.

How many different kinds of spices can you find in Mediterranean cuisine?

If you’re looking to stock up on Mediterranean pantry staples, we suggest oregano, cumin, and basil. Other spices to consider are black pepper and crushed red pepper flakes as well as curry and dill powders. Other herbs to consider include rosemary, sage, and turmeric.

Is Greek seasoning the same as Mediterranean seasoning?

While Greek seasoning is Mediterranean in nature, not all Mediterranean food is equivalent to Greek seasoning in terms of taste. Many of the same components are used by countries across the sea, but regional differences in spice varieties give each country its own distinct recipes.

What is the difference between Italian and Greek oregano?

When it comes to flavor, Greek oregano is the most savory and earthy, while Italian is a softer, milder flavor.
There are many distinct kinds of oregano. They may have a stronger bitter, sweet, or spicy flavor depending on the region they are from.

Are spices better fresh or dried?

Most of the time, but not always. It’s not often that dried herbs are better than fresh ones in a recipe. For example, the difference in flavor between fresh and dried thyme is significant, with fresh thyme being softer and more complex, while dried thyme can be bitter in flavor. However, dried oregano adds more flavor than fresh. You can use fresh or dried spices depending on your dish. Study how each spice works, and you’ll experience the magic they add to food.
