Herbs for Flavor, Health and Natural Beauty
When you think of herbs, the usual suspects come to mind - parsley, chives and perhaps dill. But Jim Rude and Jena Carlin don’t stop there with their first cookbook. Recipes incorporating burnet, lemon verbena, tarragon and thyme and more are introduced in Herbs for Flavor, Health and Natural Beauty.
Just released by Hobble Creek Press, this beautiful collection of over 80 recipes showcases herbs in all their glory with recipes including Wild Mushroom & Thyme Bisque; Rosemary Chicken Mac & Cheese; and Maple & Sage Cheesecake with Apples & Sage Blossoms. The book is not just about cooking with herbs, but also creating with them in and outside of the kitchen. The oils and properties of herbs are legendary and this book highlights the flavor, health and natural beauty of herbs through a range of delicious recipes and exquisite craft creations including potpourri, lip balm, candles and others.
In addition to delicious recipes, we have added suggested garnishes, pairings and a description of each herb as an introduction to the recipes incorporating a particular herb. With stunning photography to highlight the herbs, recipes and creations, this hard cover book is not only a working cookbook, but also suitable for the coffee table.
