Herbs have a transformative power - they can lift a dish from ordinary to sublime. Written by a true herb aficionado, this beautiful book is an ode to enjoying herbs all year round. In each seasonal chapter, Judith Hann skillfully weaves together guidance growing - whether you have a full herb garden or simple pots on the windowsill - with delicious, imaginative recipes. Find recipe inspiration for more common herbs and discover how to use those herbs that aren't so readily available in the supermarket. Judith shares a huge collection of recipes that have been tried and tested at her herb cookery school - from simple herb sauces and salads to more ornate dishes, such as Guinea Fowl with Lovage and Lime, or Spare Ribs with Plum, Chilli and Sage Sauce. It also includes herb features, which provide a wealth of further quick recipes and ideas for: • Pestos, made with a variety of herbs • Herb syrups and sugars • Herb ices • Preserving recipes with herb flavourings • Herb cheeses, and many moreFull of anecdotes, this is a wonderfully personal account of a love affair with herbs, as well as an indispensable guide on how to make the most of them every day.
