Garden-fresh herbs impart flavor and fragrance that dried,
packaged products simply canâ€™t. Now, anyone with access to a
few square yards of soil (or even a sunny patio or
windowsill) can enjoy the punch and pungency that only come
from fresh herbs, hand-picked from the garden. Herb
Gardening from the Ground Up demonstrates how to design,
seed, and nurture 38 culinary herb gardens that are
delightful to the eye as well the palate.
Designed to supply herbs for a wide range of flavors as well
as a pleasing balance of colors, there are gardens to suit
every taste and cooking trend, including a French chefâ€™s
repertoire, an Italian trattoriaâ€™s menu, the aromatic
seasonings of Asia, the closer-to-home flavors of American
barbecue, and the piquant profiles for a Tex-Mex feast.
There are herbs for flavoring fish and game, soups and
salads, bread and other baked goods, and, for the
mixologists among us, even herbs for the home cocktail bar.
Herb Gardening from the Ground Up offers historical insight,
provides starting-from-scratch, season-to-season basics for
planting in the present, and looks forward to the bright
future of urban and suburban growing trends.
