A symbol of nobility and immortality, laurel (bay leaves) has also been used in cooking for centuries, for its flavor and benefits. It is known to have numerous therapeutic properties. Coming from the Mediterranean, it grows well in warm climates. It is common to use its leaves when dry, and all their volatile and flavorful oils are preserved and are released when soaking or crushing the leaves. In addition, dried ones have a much more delicate and warm aroma than fresh ones, when they retain a much more bitter taste.

The bay leaf adds another depth of flavor to cooked dishes. The laurel we use in the Algarve is grown spontaneously. To harvest its leaves, the branches are cut to ensure new growth and then dried in the shade before being hand-packed.
