Herbes fondamentales

My fiancé has the nose of a bloodhound, and he’s exceptional at sniffing out exactly what seasonings to use to bring depth, flavor, and aroma to a dish. He created a spice mix that we use as a base for seasoning in many of the Western dishes we make. The mix utilizes herbs and spices that are common to most pantries. I highly recommend making a batch of it and using it as we do—a dash here, a pinch there, for any occasion.
