You can tell that Maggie Stuckey is both a gardener and a cook. And, while the recipes, of which there are 200 for the 30 Spices listed, are enticing, it is her sense of history that is thoroughly enjoyable. 

Written concisely and clearly, her storytelling takes us back to the lands and people who first enjoyed these spices. 

We came across this book while looking for information on Cardamom and were hooked by the time we reached the entry for Elletaria Cardamomum. 

The spices, and the recipes for those spices, included in this book are: Allspice, Anise, Caraway, Cayenne and Chili  Peppers, Cinnamon, Cloves, Coriander, Cumin, Dill Seeds, Fennel, Fenugreek, Ginger, Horseradish, Juniper Berries, Mace, Mustard Seeds, Nutmeg, Paprika, Pepper, Poppy Seeds, Saffron, Sesame Seeds, Star Anise, Turmeric, Vanilla. Also, conveniently included are the recipes for Curry Powder and Five-Spice Powder.

If you like to do things with your herbs and spices besides cook, you will enjoy the crafts that revolve around each spice.
