Library Journal Review

A plethora of herb gardening and cooking books is available, some by Creasy herself. But if your collection needs a new one, this work, combining gardening information with recipes, is recommended. The price is a bargain for an attractive, well-designed package with over 70 color photographs and illustrations. Included are sections on growing herbs and designing an herb garden. An appendix addresses pest and disease control, and there is a selection of recipes using fresh herbs. The heart of the book, though, is the "Encyclopedia of Culinary Herbs: From Angelica to Thyme." Here each plant is pictured in color with text explaining how to grow and prepare it. Both Creasy and the "Edible Garden" series are well regarded; Creasy's The Complete Book of Edible Landscaping (LJ 5/1/82) was named one of the 75 Great American Garden Books by the American Horticultural Society. Her new book is a visual treat that also offers useful, well-organized, and well-presented information.¬ĎCarol Cubberley, Univ. of Southern Mississippi, Hattiesburg (c) Copyright 2010.
