This is a groovy book. I like it for several reasons.
This summer was the first year I actually have my own herb garden. It is small, but I have Wild Celery, Parsley and Basil. But after reading this book, I actually now know what they are good for, and more ways to use it.
I really loved all the different aspects to using a single herb or flower. You know most are used in cooking, but take Wild Celery for example, did you know it's great to eat but also can be made into a decoction, used for rheumatoid arthritis! How cool is that?!
So, usually when recipes are thrown into a book I get on making one to add to the review. I haven't done so this time, but will be in the future, so look for the upcoming post.
I definitely am going to be talking about this book for a while, and recommending it to all who are interested in herbs.
