Set up like a field guide - with color plates in the center, along with the guide to the icons - each entry includes Other Names, General Description, Season, Purchase and Avoid, Storage, and Recipe.
Anyone who glances at this will find a place for it on the kitchen shelf. The recipes alone are likely to win you over, from Creole Mustard Sauce (mustard seed), Carrot Currant Salad (rosemary) and Veal with Myrtle. For those who want to try Shrimp with Calamint, say, or Indian Naan with Negella Seeds, online sources are listed at the back of the book.
The entries themselves are packed with information from origins and history to special preparations and seasonal considerations. A truly terrific little book.
Of course, you shop to a recipe that you're planning to serve - right?
Once you've decided WHAT you're going to serve, this handy guide helps you recognize the Herbs and Spices you need for your recipe.
It just doesn't get any easier.
It have a lot of useful info about seasonings.
You definitely would found something you didn't know in this book.
It's size is small enough to take with you when you go to market.
There are fun facts about the various historical uses of it's subjects and the full color photos are wonderful.
It's not really a field guide per se...not for finding and identifying plants in the wild, but it is great for navigating the subtle variations in herb/spice varieties and their specific culinary uses.
The book is well organized, small enough to cart around with you through the market or garden, and seems to be well researched.
This is the perfect companion to Ms. Green's "Field Guide to Produce."
