Bay leaf is an aromatic leaf commonly used in cooking, either ground down into dried pieces or added whole. Wilted and dried bay leaves provide a distinctive flavour and fragrance that may be compared to oregano or thyme. They should be removed from the cooked food before eating. Bay leaves have proven benefits for detoxifying, anti-bacteria and anti-ageing.
Dried bay leaves have long-been used to flavour soups, stews, curries and pâtés primarily in international cuisines such as Thai, Indian, Mediterranean and Brazilian. Bay leaves are most commonly known for their inclusion in Thai curries so be sure to add a handful next time you’re whipping up a weeknight curry. To get the full flavour infusion of bay leaves in your dish, add a handful to the cooking food and remove them before serving.
