The easiest way to make Tarragon Cream Sauce

Tarragon, also named estragon, is one of many herbs, but it is also part of the ‘fines herbes’ along with chervil, chives and parsley.

What does tarragon taste like?

It has a pungent, liquorice-like taste due to the presence of estragole, an organic compound that gives fennel, anise and tarragon their distinct flavours.


Tarragon can be used fresh or dried and it is one of the few herbs where the dried version is as good as the fresh and the taste stays the same. 

This is the easiest version to make a tarragon cream sauce. Only a few ingredients are needed to result into a mild but well flavoured sauce. It pairs well with any kind of meat, poultry or fish.
