Parsley is a subtly flavoured herb that is often used as a garnish. There is, however, a particular Italian pasta sauce that uses parsley as one of its main ingredients along with garlic and anchovies. Like most Italian herbs it can be used to flavour soups, salads, meat marinades and dressings.

Garlic is used globally in virtually every type of cuisine but without most dishes of Mediterranean origin would not be achieved. Garlic comes in many forms, granulated, flaked and powder or fresh. It is used for virtually every savoury dish including bread and croutons.

Rosemary is an herb that has a wonderful aroma and is used extensively in roasted lamb and grilled meat
dishes. It can be used making Italian breads especially focaccia. All types of seafood, poultry and vegetable dishes are enhanced by this herb.

Sage is traditionally used in the preparation for stuffing for meat and poultry, and occasionally to flavour soups and sausages. In the Tuscany region of Italy, sage is used to flavour many of their bean dishes including soups and Salads. Another Tuscan speciality is Saltimbocca, a veal dish, which includes sage.
