The ‘flavours’ mentioned are just as important to medical herbalists as they are to cooks: sweet/bland, salty, sour, astringent, pungent, bitter. The book gives a list of common foods and of herbs that fit into each category. In Chinese cuisine food and medicine are often indistinguishable – and here too are suggestions for eating yourself into good health – while really enjoying your food. There is a section on how to store herbs and advice on how to make various herbal preparations such as tinctures, teas and infused oils and vinegars that can then be used medically or in the kitchen.
After the formal herbal monographs, come the wonderful recipes. I tried eleven of the recipes, and the results ranged from very tasty, to excellent, and there are many more recipe that I want to have a go at. The recipes were a real mix of meat, fish based and vegetarian – salads, baking, frying, roasting and boiling – starters, mains, sides and sweets. No recipe was “way out there”, but all had a nice tweak (usually herbal) that made them something special. The instructions were easy to follow, and oven temperatures (though unfortunately not weights) were always given in imperial and metric measurements. Some of my favourite recipes were “Braised Chicken with Shallots and Figs”, “Leek and Gorgonzola Custard”, “Butternut Squash stuffed with French Lentils and Walnuts”, “Baked Eggs with Parsley Pesto” and the delicious “Deep-Sea Purple Kraut”. I had always wanted to try fermenting vegetables, and the purple kraut recipe was a great introduction. Not only did it taste amazing, it was so much fun to make, and it looked so appetizing waiting on the kitchen counter for the 3 weeks it took to ferment. I am so looking forward to trying the fermented “Dilly Beans” when we have this year’s surfeit of French beans in the garden.
This is an excellent cookbook, and an excellent (and safe) introduction to herbal medicine, that will be an asset to anyone’s collection.
I received this copy from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review
I received the book Saturday, and on Sunday my partner and I cooked the Crispy Sage and Roasted Garlic Risotto for dinner. I lived in Florence for a short time and was able to take cooking classes while there. This risotto beats out all the recipes I learned there.
Brittany is such an insightful, soothing, and kind teacher- her presence shines through in this book. Reading her anecdotes, prepping the recipe, and cooking this delicious meal was a healing process from start to finish. Thank you for this book! I highly recommend it. Looking forward to making more of the recipes!
