Herbes d' Provence

Good Morning.

So, this past weekend I was called upon to cook a risotto at a friend's apartment. Knowing there was no "herbes" to be had there, and wanting to infuse them into some chicken broth, I stopped at the first store between the subway and the apartment, Dean and Delucca, and purchased a jar.

They were, frankly, terrible.

I can't imagine how it is possible to screw up something so ancient and delicious so badly, but I am now filled with trepidation at the thought of purchasing more bad herbes d' provence. I have taken to wearing dark sunglasses, ducking into random doors and doubling back on my path to avoid being tailed, and carrying a weapon, and if I don't confront this demon soon I fear that I may hurt someone.

So please, someone, anyone, tell me where I can find some GOOD Herbes de Provence before it is too late.


Good Night.
