A storefront window in Provence offers a look at the delicacies available for sale inside. Known for its lavender fields, the region is also famous for other herbes de Provence—basil, fennel, thyme, and savory. The herbs flourish in the rich, dry soil and lend a distinctively aromatic, south-of-France flavor to foods cooked all over the world.
