herbs?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 

The other day I saw a book that has a ton of herbs and spices, their flavors and origin and what they are used for. Anyone have any ideas what that may be called?

There are a ton of them.

 

Try going down this list http://www.cheftalk.com/product.php?action=add_search and see if anything looks familiar.

First published in 1931 I have A modern Herbal by Mrs M.Grieve maybe not what ur looking for but a gd read. Back then and I know right up ill the 80's Coriander was grown just for the seeds. the leaves were considered too pungent. Where would we be now witout cilantro eh?

Sounds like "Herbs & Spices: The Cook's Reference" by Jill Norman.  Did it have photos in it of all the herbs and spices?  "Herbs & Spices" does.  Might be what your looking for.
