C’est une plante aromatique que nous connaissons bien en France, puisqu’elle parfume nombre de nos plats ! Elle est incontournable dans le bouquet garni dans lequel on l’associe au laurier et au persil. Le thym donne un parfum incomparable aux légumes du sud (tomate, aubergine, courgette) ainsi qu'aux volailles, aux poissons, aux gibiers et à l'agneau.
