This book will be released on September 21, 2017. I received a copy through NetGalley.
This beautiful book is all about herbs, written by someone with an obvious passion for them. Not just a cookbook, this book not only explains how to use the herbs written about, but how to grow them as well. The book is divided into seasons, with each intro giving a list of things to do in that season to take care of your herb garden.
Each herb talked about has a history section as well as tips on cooking and growing before a few recipes where it has a starring role. Besides the section on each herb, interspersed throughout the book are pages on things that involve multiple herbs, such as a page on pesto, herb teas, and herb cheeses.
Personally, most of the recipes in this book are not to my taste, but it’s well worth checking out just for the loads of information on the different herbs and sections on making herb syrups, herb ice cream, herb preserves, and anything else you could think of. This would make a great gift for an adventurous cook or a gardener.
