Herb / A Cooks Companion
We introduced this book back in the Fall of 2021 but alas, it ran out of print. Phew..it's back on and we're lucky to restock it.
Author Mark Diacono is a gardener as well as a cook. He not only provides a guide to sowing, planting, feeding and propagating herbs, but there are also full plant descriptions and their main culinary affinities.
He explores various ways to preserve herbs including making oils, drying, vinegars, syrups and freezing, before offering over 100 innovative recipes that make the most of your new herb knowledge.
While Diacono focuses on the familiars--thyme, rosemary, basil, and chives, the book will also open the door to a few lesser known herbs like, lovage, sweet cicely, and makrut lime. This is a true 'keeper' for any culinary reference library.
