5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book 22 April 2014
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I watch a lot of cookery programmes, and I am always amazed at the different Herbs and Spices the Chefs use.
I have many cook books, and became interested in the basics, such as the spices, herbs etc.
This book I purchased is amazing. It is informative, colourful, and the wealth of knowledge is incredible.
I will never need to buy another book on the subject.
There are also many recipes as well.
The book has an A-Z of spices, where they come from, how they can be used with other herbs in cooking..
....and much more.
I have always wanted a book like this, and I am very happy with this one.
