A Celebration of Herbs Recipes from the Huntington Herb Garden by Shirley Kerins

In this gorgeous cookbook, which was named the National Winner of the 2003 Tabasco Community Cookbook Awards, Shirley Kerins shares her wealth of knowledge about growing and cooking with herbs. Featuring a full range of dishes, from appetizers, salads, side dishes, soups and breads to entrees, preserves, desserts, and beverages, the book includes an innovative Pad Thai Pesto, a tried-and-true Herbed Vichyssoise, and a luscious Apple-Rosemary Tarte Tatin. Gardeners will find A Celebration of Herbs to be an essential reference, with information on cultivating, harvesting, drying, and storing herbs and an extensive listing of plant and seed suppliers in North America. Peppered throughout the cookbook are excerpts from the Huntington Library's collection of rare herbals and botanical books from the fifteenth to eighteenth centuries.


This part history, part cookbook is worthy of the elegance associated with the Huntington Library's formal gardens, renowned art museum, and marvelous library. -- American Herb Association Quarterly
