Let the fun begin — Grow. Preserve. Cook!
Learn how to transform your cooking! Herbs have the ability to change the taste of food with their unique flavors and, by their very colour, add life to dishes by sprinkling them with fresh herbs before serving, or as pretty and edible garnishes. Herbs also give the authentic taste to international cuisines.
Grow your own herbs (learn what conditions herbs like best) or purchase the many kinds of cut herbs available in supermarkets. When you have too much for cooking, you can use them up by drying, freezing, infusing into oil, vinegar, honey and syrups, or adding to butter, mustard, salt or sugar. In this book you will find everything you need to know, whether you are just starting an herb garden, or want to advance your knowledge of culinary herbs. The amazing recipes take you from appetizers to dessert and more. And enjoy some aroma therapy as you prepare.
