The factual/educational sections contain the different uses of these three plants throughout history which, surprisingly enough, includes their medicinal properties and uses.
The gardening sections are well done in that they cover both growing outdoors and in containers, so anyone can begin to grow these at home, save money, and have fresh ingredients to use whenever they like.
The recipe sections for each ingredient, with the authors 10 favorite recipes for EACH of these, are very broad in their use of the ingredients, including recipes for both meat eaters and vegetarians.
I was quite surprised to see how much this book included within it and I would highly recommend it to anyone. It's a very refreshing, and pleasantly surprising book for anyone to get.
This super little recipe book not only contains wonderful ginger recipes, garlic recipes and chives, but gives botanical and medicinal information on this spicy herbal trio, as well as how to grow, harvest, and preserve them.
An avid ginger-holic, I'm ready to prepare the ginger preserves, always great to have as a spread, but fabulous for those queezy stomachs. And the thought of Ginger Cup Cakes with Orange Icing, Ginger Peppered Steak, oh my! And if you're up for gourmet fare, there's Murgh Adraki.
And the garlic recipes: Roast Garlic and Lemon Soup, Peppery Garlic Prawns, Spinach with Sesame and Garlic....orgasmic...and I'm just hitting my personal highlights.
And for chive lovers, how does Prawn and Avocado Salad with Chives sound? Crab Muffins with Chives, Chicken Stuffed with Cream Cheese and Chives and that's not the half of it. This book could keep serious garlic-ginger-chive lovers busy for weeks.
Not even mentioning the nifty little conversion table. Oh and did I mention the non-cook Zucchini Pate? I can't imagine anyone not appreciating this little book. Highly recommended.
Few people need to be convinced that any of these herbs are beneficial for either your health or taste buds, so the last part of each section delivers a series of ten recipes that bring the flavour out to their best advantage.
Whether you want to eat better or add flavour to your dining, this book provides all you need to know how to produce, prepare and use garlic, ginger and chives to their very best advantage.
If you love fresh herbs and especially these THREE, then this is a MUST HAVE BOOK!
Highly recommend this book to you.
