  1. I’m starting to worry. I’ve just started to make this and there are no herbs other than bay leaves. I can’t view the video for confirmation because I am in the UK. Most recipes like this have basil or thyme or oregano or all 3. Currently I’m just hoping it’s not a mistake. Please update me either with words of confidence or to confirm the herbs!! Thanks.
