Bay Leaves/ Laurel Leaves, also known as “Laurus nobilis L.,” are leaves used in cooking thanks to their unique flavor. The leaves are used fresh or dried, however, it is often said that the full flavor comes out months after drying the leaf. Laurel leaves are typically used in soups, stews and braises, however, the leaves are generally removed before cooking has finished and all flavor has been released into the food. Bay leaves are a great compliment to fish and chicken dishes.
