Bay leaves, shiny and smooth in appearance, come from an evergreen tree and is the only form of laurel used in cooking. In ancient times Romans and Greeks used bay to create wreaths that would be worn as crowns. These crowns symbolized great accomplishment by athletes and heroes. This aromatic herb is wonderful in meat dishes, especially fish and red meats. Delicious in soups and stews, and used as a marinade. Add it at the start of cooking to give it time to release its flavor.
