"As a spice used in almost every culture around the world, fennel’s unique, slightly sweet flavor profile accented with warm notes of licorice brings out hidden flavors in a wide variety of dishes. Rumi’s fennel is grown wild in the rugged outskirts of the Herat region in Afghanistan, where local foragers gather fennel during the summer harvest. Native to the Mediterranean, fennel cultivation has spread around the world and is well known for its use in Italian roasts and sauces, German sauerkraut, and countless dishes in China and India. Fennel pairs well with other herbs and spices such as basil, thyme, and oregano, and offers any cook amazing versatility in applications, from fish and pork rubs to sauces, curries, breads, and baked goods.
