Great recipe book Jul 13, 2008
This book is filled with great recipes using fresh herbs (also has dried equivalents). It also contains good info about individual herbs. I liked it so much that I bought 3 copies to give as gifts.
Great recipes and a great primer on herbs Sep 30, 2007
This recipe book is very informative. I plan to have an herb garden next spring and will be able to use many of them by following recipes in this book. Some of the recipes are very similar to each other as the book is a collection from people all over the United States but there is overall a wide variety of recipes. Most recipes provide equivalents for dried herbs as well, if you don't have access to fresh ones. The back of the book has a lot of information about each herb and the index is by herb.
Excellent Book!!!!!!! Aug 26, 2007
I received this book this week. I like it very much. It was just what I was looking for. Lots of recipes, well organized, mutliple ways of finding what you are looking for. Just an excellent, excellent book. Very well written, and easy to understand. I am so glad I bought it. I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who wants to learn how to use herbs, especially fresh herbs. The print is also easy to read, good for us older folks. I have the spiral edition for easy reference while cooking. All in all a great find!

Yummy Jun 8, 2007
Best herb cookbook I've ever used. Recipes are from herb farms across the country with readily available ingredients and concise instructions. Check out the Zucchini Torte and Herbed Potato Pie. The book also has a section on individual herbs...growing needs, how to use them, etc. A keeper.
