Editorial Reviews

From Library Journal

Hutson tells readers both how to grow and how to cook with herbs. She's particularly helpful with less-known herbs, such as marigold mint. After discussing propagation, pests, etc., she follows with recipes such as grilled catfish with smoked peppers and marigold mint. Special sections deal with Mexican and Oriental herbs such as epazote, hoja santa, and makrut. Her emphasis is on 20 herbs that will flourish in the South and Southwest, and the recipes are vigorously flavorful. Recommended. SP

Review

Lucinda Hutson’s garden is something of a legend in Austin. An invitation from Lucinda, an authority on ethnic herbs and an accomplished cook, to sample a new dish or special punch in her flamboyant setting is a guaranteed fiesta. . . . And her gusto for entertaining and cooking is exemplified in her recipes [in] The Herb Garden Cookbook. (Southern Living)

I have used this book, in both hardcover and paperback, until its covers are ratty. It is wittily written, as well as clear, and it covers loads of things you can do with herbs, as well as how to grow the things, and some interesting history of most of the herbs as well.

The book is worth reading especially if you like herbs and southwestern cooking. I met Lucinda in person and she is a delight; her home is about as adorable as it gets! I am not a big tex mex fan but her appetizer suggestions are worth noting and everything is well thought out and displayed. A very enjoyable read!

Saw this woman at an Herb Forum. She was so funny and told cute, humerous stories. And she relays some of them in this cookbook. If you grow herbs and want to cook with them, this book is good!

I have bought many copies of this book for gifts for my friends and relatives and own two copies. It is one of the most thorough of the herb books I own.
