Herbcraft is a philosophical approach to the joyous experience of cooking. “Everything about the very day you achieve your dish contributes to its magic - your family and friends around sharing, your table, your dishes, your linens, your candles and candlesticks, the way your table is sunstruck or dappled in moving light from leaves outside, your healthy appetite.” Chapters include uses for herbs, virtues of herbs, selected recipes, garden plans, ideas to ornament your environment, and a guide to herb shopping. The playful and imaginative illustrations are equally inspiring as they are gleeful text throughout.
