The Cook's Herb Garden

About the book

-information taken from the DK Canada website

With a catalog of 150 different culinary herbs and their varieties, more than 30 recipes, step-by-step photographs on how to plant, nurture, harvest, and store, and flavor charts that list the best herbs to partner with popular ingredients, The Cook's Herb Garden shows you how to grow your own supply of herbs whether on a window ledge, in pots, on the patio, or in a vegetable garden.


If you have ever wanted to grow your own herbs than this is definitely the book for you. It covers everything from how to grow the plants to weed control and harvesting. It also has an amazing herb catalog. And don't worry if you don't know what herbs to use in what dishes- this book has all the information you need! The pictures are very helpful for those of us who aren't sure which herb is which. I also really appreciated the "cook's notes" for each herb.

This is a fabulous book for anyone who loves to cook and who wants to have their own herb garden!

Thanks so much to DK Canada for sending me a review copy of this book.

There is also recipes in the book. I actually used them and not they're good!
Have to look in the very back of the book!

Oh. the book sounds good. Maybe I should get one for myself too! I think I really need to practice my skills of using herbs for my cooking. Honestly, I am not fond of using herbs but now I want to learn at least.
