Grow and enjoy the ultimate green food - herbs that are fresh, local, seasonal, and delicious.
Two of America's most beloved pastimes, cooking and gardening, come together in this delightful book of herb-gardening tips and innovative recipes. From the garden to the kitchen, Tim Haas and Jan Beane have captured the pleasure of growing, harvesting, and cooking with herbs such as basil, mint, oregano, and garlic.
The Herb Garden Gourmet begins with explicit directions and suggestions for planning, planting, and cultivating your own fresh herbs. Then Tim and Jan move into the kitchen, to utilize each herb in delicious recipes, incorporating the flavors and flare only found in fresh herbs. Highlighted with history, lore, cooking tips, and information about herbal health benefits, this book also includes lots of room to jot down notes and recipes, allowing green thumbs and chefs to add, modify, or create their own culinary endeavors.
