Cookbooks are often based around a collective ingredient type, regional tastes, or a cooking method. This is not one of those pigeon-holed cook books. It is a (vegetarian) cook book that focuses on full flavor, and long time benefits of herbs. Because of that, its contents are wide and varied!
This cookbook provides an easy approach to using herbs as ingredients, understanding their different forms, and focusing on how to best flavor food, and then of course, offering dozens of recipes on how to put your herb knowledge into practice.
This guide is also practical, in that it recognizes the seasonality of herbs, and prescribes some recipes for summer, and other for winter.
Yeay Basil! My husband would live on basil if he could! This Tomatoes Stuffed with Basil and Shiitake Mushrooms recipe looks perfect for this time of year as we bring in the harvest from our gardens. I don’t know what I’m going to do without fresh herbs once winter strikes.
I wanted to give you a quick glimpse of the table of contents regarding the recipe types- a full menu can be taken from this book.
Herbs are essential to great recipes. Learning how to use them in recipes is key to taking the next culinary step in your home. Plus, the health benefits of herbs are numerous. The recipes are easy and look full of flavor in this cookbook.
