A magical, medicinal, gastronomical 3-in-1 herbal reference guide!... With so many seasonings so readily available today, what a shame we often use so few. Especially since herbs aren't just for flavor. Given the health benefits many herbs possess, their ability to enhance a food's taste could be viewed as a mere fringe benefit. That's why this glossary lists not only the culinary information for fifty (50) different herbs and spices, but also their medicinal properties -- and, as an added bonus, their "magical" properties, too, making this a three-in-one reference. You'll also find here tips for handling herbs, zesty recipes to try, an additional glossary of medicinal-effects terms, and a generous sprinkling of spicy history and lore. A big bunch of info all packed into one wonderful and whimsical little book.
