Exotic Herbs

Overview

Exotic Herbs is an alluring horticultural and culinary guidebook. It unfastens the kitchen door leading to Carole Saville's celebrated herb garden in the Hollywood Hills. Here she has cultivated a treasury of intriguing and unfamiliar edible herbs, herbs that are pleasing to the eye as much as they are a delight to the palate.

Overview

Exotic Herbs is an alluring horticultural and culinary guidebook. It unfastens the kitchen door leading to Carole Saville's celebrated herb garden in the Hollywood Hills. Here she has cultivated a treasury of intriguing and unfamiliar edible herbs, herbs that are pleasing to the eye as much as they are a delight to the palate. While marveling at the sheer variety and ornamental beauty of these herbs, the reader is soon persuaded to look beyond well-worn combinations and enhancements for cuisine - rosemary with lamb, sage with pork, parsley with potatoes, basil for the best pesto - and revel in the creative possibilities that these uniquely flavored specimens afford. Seducing both the gardener and the cook, Carole Saville demonstrates how to grow and use sixty daringly uncommon herbs. She provides planting instructions for each herb (covering all methods of propagation in and out of doors), descriptions of growth habits in different parts of the country, useful tips on maintenance and design, charming historical anecdotes, and detailed source information. With luscious full-color photography, Exotic Herbs shows how to safely and successfully harvest, prepare, and eat these herbs. Over fifty mouthwatering recipes by Saville, as well as some from several prominent American chefs, complete the enchantment.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
While at first glance these two titles might seem very similar, they approach their subject from different angles, down to the different varieties of herbs discussed. For Gardner (The Old-Fashioned Fruit Garden, Chelsea Green, 1991), life revolves around herbs, and she joyfully draws on her extensive experience with them. Opening with a section on growing methods, she includes information on soil preparation and propagation, traditional and alternative methods of harvesting herbs, uses of herbs in the home (from aromatherapy to wreaths), and a short section on landscape design with herbs. More than half of Gardner's book is devoted to 75 herb portraits, each focusing on one herb (or in a few cases a wildflower or shrub) that the author has found useful. In her culinary-inspired work, Saville (coauthor of Herbs: A Country Garden Cookbook of Collins Pub. San Francisco, 1995) examines unusual herbs. After providing readers with a short chapter on growing herbs, she moves right into an up-close and personal look at 60 uncommon herbs, with a soup├žon of history and folklore, scientific and common names, growing instructions, culinary uses, and even recipes. While Gardner covers a broader range of topics-everything from crafts to building your own drying racks-Saville prefers to concentrate solely on the growing and culinary usage of herbs. Gardner's charm and commonsense approach will appeal to the herb neophyte, while Saville's poetic and lyrical writing style will inspire the adventurous gardener/cook looking for new ideas and unusual varieties of herbs to try out.-John Charles, Scottsdale P.L, Ariz.
