Product Description

Review

This is the best book I've seen on this subject and I just want to buy it for everyone I know! It is a great resource, an inspiration,a thing of great beauty and healing. Everyone should have a copy in their kitchens! --Glennie Kindred, Permaculture Magazine

The book s many sumptuous, full-colour and often full-page photographs give it a stunning visual effect. The book is a welcome, up-to-date offering that will help connect the wider public to herbal/plant medicine. --The Herbalist

Wonderful photographs, historical notes and anecdotes, illustrations, including recipes and a quick reference by ailment, combine to produce a practical and beautiful book. --The Landsman

Every bit as good as their Hedgerow Medicine book, using commonly found items in the kitchen. A pleasure to dip into for a read and excellent advice and recipes for various ailments, well worth the money.

Every now and again I find a book I can't live without and kitchen medicine is one of those books. It's well written and easy to follow, packed full of useful information. If you've ever fancied learning practical ways to improve your health and heal yourself this is a great place to start. It's turned my drab spice rack into a wonderland of possibilities.

This book was bought on the back of a herbal course i went on and i found it to be just as good. Take the time to read through, some of it you may already know. Refresh your memory, your parents, etc may have used these remedies when you were younger.
