In celebration of LSUP’s 80th anniversary the staff selected 80 of our most memorable titles. Adding to our “Around the Press in 80 Books” blog series, Assistant Marketing Manager Kate Barton writes about The Herb Society of America’s Essential Guide to Growing and Cooking with Herbs.
The Herb Society of America’s Essential Guide to Growing and Cooking with Herbs is a book that truly lives up to its name. Readers will find everything from growing tips to recipes, all in one handy resource. For the brave souls interested in starting their own herb garden, the gardening section offers information about where certain herbs thrive, when to pick them, and how they are best used. The sketches also help the inexperienced gardeners identify what the plant should look like.
I love browsing through the recipe section of the book and selecting recipes I would like to try. Herb Society members from all over the country contributed recipes, giving it the warmth and variety of a family cookbook where favorite recipes are shared. Readers can find all sorts of recipes for appetizers, salad dressings, soups, entrees, beverages, and desserts. The Pesto and Cream Cheese Round and the Rosemary Fizz punch are ones that I have earmarked for future parties. The Grilled Corn Dip would be great for those fall football tailgates. And Nannette’s Greek Orzo Salad sounds refreshing on these hot summer days. If you are thinking about starting an herb garden, or maybe just committing to using more fresh herbs in your cooking, this book is for you.
