This illustrated encyclopaedia includes more than 150 herb- and spice-based recipes - classic mixtures, as well as new and original ideas, together with detailed step-by-step preparation and cooking techniques. There are over 750 specially commissioned photographs of every source plant from around the world. Profile pages show the plant or spice itself and how it is used - chopped, dried, snipped, ground or rubbed. The book covers the entire range of culinary seasonings and flavour enhancers, including edible flowers, roots and grasses; details flavour groupings used to produce authentic ethnic dishes with menu guides and lists of traditional ingredients; revives traditional recipes such as spiced butters, candying and crystallizing, flavoured oils and vinegars, scented sugars and honey. All ingredients are now readily available in UK supermarkets or ethnic food shops.
