Gourmet Herbs

Classic and Unusual Herbs for Your Garden and Your Table

by Beth Hanson
OVERVIEW
Written by acclaimed herb experts, this handsome and fact-packed compendium is a don't-miss for both gardeners and cooks. Not only does it feature the classic culinary herbs, but also the up-and-coming and hard-to-obtain varieties at the heart of the new international cuisine. From epazote (used in Mexican and Southwestern entrees), to fenugreek (an essential in Middle Eastern dishes), these plants go beyond the purely ornamental to bring you fresh, exciting tastes and aromas. Assure yourself of having a plentiful supply by following the tips on starting herbs from seed, growing them in containers, and preserving them for year-round use. Design a garden that looks beautiful, with contour and contrast, and that has an irresistible mixture of color and scent. A huge illustrated encyclopedia of gourmet herbs provides cultivating and cooking guidance, and recipes for scrumptious meals--like bruschetta, arroz verde, and Asian sate--will keep you harvesting and enlarging your herbal stock!
