So, what is d'anis étoilé?

D'anis étoilé, also known as star anise, is a spice commonly used in Asian cuisine that has a distinct licorice-like flavor and aroma. It is the fruit of an evergreen tree native to China and Vietnam, with eight pointed pods that resemble stars. The pods are harvested and dried, and their essential oils are extracted for use in cooking, baking, and medicinal purposes. In addition to its culinary uses, d'anis étoilé is believed to have several health benefits, such as aiding digestion, relieving respiratory issues, and promoting sleep. Its unique flavor and versatility make it a valuable ingredient in both savory and sweet dishes.
