Dried bay leaves they have been used since ancient times to add earthy dimension to dishes. Daphnis and Chloe’s limited-production leaves are harvested from a small farm facing the Ionian Sea, where the Mediterranean terroir lends a subtle balsamic flavor to the bay leaves. Add a couple to your next pot of beans, soup, stew or braise. Bay leaves can also be used to help cut sweetness in desserts. Try adding to rice pudding with a stiff shot of vanilla or our Tangerine-Almond Cake with Bay-Infused Syrup.
