France: "Fines Herbes" Include Dandelions?

Jump to last reply

a French friend is visiting and yesterday went out to my yet-to-be-tilled backyard garden and returned with what she said were "fines herbes"! Fines herbes I thought - in that weed patch - what could be 'fines herbes' - or fine herbs - voila - they were dandelions, including the yellow blooms! The other fines herbes I could understand - some chives and mint that she also found - but dandelions? And dandelion flowers?

Q - Are dandelions considered to be 'fines herbes' by the French - do they French routinely eat dandelion greens and blooms - or is my French friend as I suspect a bit out of the loop?
