An older book, The Herb Book, by Arabella Boxer and Phillipa Back, should really be called The Herb Cookbook. The first clue to this is on the inside cover where the publisher states that all recipes in this book are for four people and ovens should be preheated and spoon measures are level. Not the normal wording for an Herb Book, is it? Which is just as well, because these folks know how to cook. The recipes are simple and use lots of fresh and dried herbs. There are everyday dishes and fancy day dishes. And, there are tidbits of helpful information throughout.

By the way, the book also contains beauty recipes, and growing particulars on 50 herbs. Oh, yes, and the pictures are spectacular.
