Jekka McVicar's passion for herbs has evolved over 40 years. In this, her first cookery book, 'queen of herbs' Jekka offers over 250 original recipes using simple garden herbs, along with tips for growing and maintaining them. Herbs have long been a part of British culinary history, yet few people utilise them to their full potential. Incredibly versatile, not only do herbs impart flavour, aroma and texture to dishes, they are extremely beneficial to our health. Much more than a cookbook, Jekka's Herb Kitchen features 50 herbs with a chapter and recipes devoted to each - Jekka's huge knowledge of each herb's history, cultivation and medicinal and culinary uses is unsurpassed. Her recipes are simple and economical - she shows how herbs can transform a cheap cut of meat, enliven a pasta sauce, and even add delight to desserts. She also offers suggestions for how best to combine herbs and what parts to use, gives ideas for using up a glut of a specific herb, and advises on how to preserve your herbs for the winter months. Moreover, this volume is a family affair - many of Jekka's recipes are inspired by her grandmother and mother, and the stunning illustrations are by Jekka's daughter, Hannah McVicar. With colour photographs throughout, this is a unique and beautiful volume from the UK's foremost authority on herbs.

The Herb and Flower Cookbook is a cookery book with a difference. Here, you can take your cooking to the next level by cultivating aromatic plants to use when creating unusual and seasonal recipes that are fresh and full of flavour. With over 60 mouth-watering recipes, there is something to suit every occasion, whether a dinner party, family gathering or even just a quick meal for after work. The book is split into 6 chapters and contains such dishes as Pea, purslane and pansy salad, Cheesy ham and chive "shepherd's pie", Raspberry, rose and mint tiramisu, and Geranium sunset. This ingenious book also contains a simple yet practical growing guide which features over 30 herbs and edible flowers, with instructions specific to each on when, where and how to plant, when to pick and what to plant it with. A flavour thesaurus suggests the foods it works with, the taste and how it should be eaten. And although each of the 60 recipes heroes a particular herb or flower, be it sweet or savoury, alternatives are given in case there is a need for an appropriate substitute. The beauty of this book is that these edible plants can be grown in even the tiniest of spaces and are a way to improve your gardening ability, enhance your culinary skills and ensure you impress your friends and family with every meal.

Praise for the previous edition: "These three amazing authors have put together a must-have book for any vegetable grower." -- Washington Gardener "What is not included in this definitive and beautifully illustrated sourcebook on edible landscape?" -- The American Herb Association "Satisfying ... There's an abundance of information and tantalizing pictures." -- New York Times The first edition of Vegetables, Herbs and Fruit was published in 2006. All editions and formats sold more than one million copies and it quickly became a classic reference. A decade later, this edition adds a new jacket, updates the design, and expands by 60 new pages for a total of over 70 vegetables, 100 herbs and 100 popular fruits. The most current information on plant varieties and cultivation techniques make it the essential sourcebook for all food gardeners, especially for anyone who would like to start growing their own produce and who feels they need some expert advice. The coverage is phenomenal -- from the care of asparagus through the seasons to the huge number of apples that can be grown in even the smallest spaces. Lavish illustrations in an accessible layout, and clear and accurate text applicable to all regions invites readers to browse and try growing something new. Each listing opens with a large photograph of the plant and a descriptive paragraph. The topics include: species and common names; recommended varieties; cultivation techniques (propagation, growing, maintenance); container growing; harvesting and storing; pests and diseases; companion planting; medicinal uses; culinary uses, with recipes; and other uses and warnings. Additional images show other parts of the plant during the seasons, as well as recipe photographs.
