The Herb Society of America has assembled a fantastic book on common and not-so-common herbs. Tips for growing and cooking are included, as well as illustrations and recipes. Each herb is given a brief history, where it originated on the globe, how to care for the plant, and ideas on what food would be best with which to pair it. Recipes are offered for appetizers, beverages, breads, soups and sandwiches, salads and salad dressings, main dishes, vegetable and side dishes, desserts, as well as sauces and blends. Although a lovely book, color photographs would have been a fantastic addition. This is excellent for the home cook interested in learning more about how to start an herb garden for added flavor to foods, as well as gardeners looking for ideas on how to utilize their crops for the kitchen. Recommended for all public libraries.
