Origins and history of the use of aromatic herbs and spices

Flavorings for salads or vegetables derive from plants used historically in Italian cuisine, and spices known since the Middle Ages in the West.

The history of aromatic herbs is very ancient, and the Egyptians used plants for their perfume, sometimes even attributing magical powers to aromas (they were also used in embalming). The ancient Romans used some plants both for their therapeutic properties and in cooking, distinguishing the energetic, nutritional and aromatic qualities of the dishes. Over the centuries they have had more and more gastronomic success, and the ancient aromates became ingredients of refined and popular cuisines, especially to cover the smells of meat and fish - difficult to manage without refrigerators. They still come todaysate many aromas for salads or vegetables, both fresh in season and in the dried aroma version, always available in the kitchen.

The spices best known in the East for centuries, arrived in European territory already from the trade of the Phoenicians and from the era of Alexander the Great. Loved by the Romans, they spread especially in the Middle Ages. The word "spice", in fact, was born in the 12th century from the Latin "species", which defined the "species" of common foodstuffs such as flour and barley. Gradually it narrowed down to aromatic herbs and spices. The use of aromatic herbs and spices in gratinating is well attested in this type of cooking. Gratin vegetables are a dish known for centuries, given that this technique derives from French cuisine in the eighteenth century. The term in fact derives from the verb "gratter" due to the grating of cheese and bread on vegetables before baking them (it was also widespread for fish and meat). After the initial covering of cheese and breadcrumbs, over time the gratin also included other ingredients. Not only the aromatic herbs to give an extra touch of flavour, but also the béchamel sauce. A way to enhance the effect of gratinating in the oven, which makes the vegetables crispy on the surface, without drying them inside.
