From Basil to Thyme: Culinary Endeavors From the Garden to the Kitchen
Author: Tim Haas
Two of America's most loved pastimes, cooking and gardening, come together in this delightful collection of recipes. The first chapters of the book teach readers how to plant and cultivate their own fresh herbs. The authors show that we can all enjoy the wonderful scent of lavender, the refreshing, cool aroma of mint, or the delicate taste of chervil...no matter how large or small our herb garden. The remaining chapters highlight the history, lore and health benefits of a featured herb, followed by recipes to accent and feature its wonderful fresh flavor. A few extra pages in each chapter allow green thumbs and chefs to add, modify or create their own recipes. A planting calendar concludes the book, giving both experienced and novice gardeners a quick and easy planting guide for a successful herb garden.
