Dried herbs are good in a pinch, but nothing compares to the flavor that fresh herbs bring to your kitchen. Part cookbook, part horticultural guide, this sure-to-become-indispensable resource will elevate your home cooking…and provide several new uses for your abundant herb garden! Herb

and methods for creating your own herb butters, syrups, and oils. Next, an illustrated glossary of two dozen "herbs to grow and eat"
includes advice on how to grow, harvest, and use them, along with lists of food pairings. Finally, more than 100 recipes round out this green guide, including deep-fried potatoes in rosemary butter; fig, goat's cheese, and herb salad; lemon thyme and leek tart; scallops in a sea of herbs; pork and green sauce tacos; lemon lavender meringues; and a piña colada mojito.
