I confess to being slightly disappointed by this book. I had high expectations, having previously purchased other River Cottage handbooks and been totally wowed by them. With the other books in this series, the basics are covered for total novices but there are also some some really exciting tips and recipes. With this book, it never seems to get beyond the basic information that is easily found elsewhere. Don't get me wrong, this book isn't bad, just a little ordinary. If you are new to growing and cooking herbs, then you will find this book useful as it is well organised. If you want something more exciting, then look elsewhere.

This year i've created my own herb garden in a few different forms and I needed a companion, something to offer advice where needed and how I can make the most of my herbs at a beginner level. This book was perfect for me. It is exactly what I would have expected and has a comprehensive index of some of the most common herbs and some other that you might not find around the British Isles.

If you are an advanced gardener and need something that a little bit different, I suggest you stick with what you know because I doubt you will learn anything new (excpet maybe a few of the recipes in the back) however if you need help and advice growing and cooking your own herbs and you don't currently own a book for this nature, get it! Its simple to follow, offers advice on cuttings, growing and cooking. And its half price (at the time of writing).

Recently when purchasing herbs to make a casserole I was shocked at how much these few additions cost. Not tha they're a one use item but when you add them up over the course of a year it can be quite a tidy sum.

Growing up I remembered having a Bay Leaf Tree, fresh Chives and a few other fresh herbs around the garden, so when this book from River Cottage arrived I thought why not grow my own. After all, fresh is best and after a little outlay, provided you look after them, you can have fresh herbs for life.

Provided within are tips on how to cultivate you own supplies alongside some wonderful recipes for their usage. All in this is a great book all round and something that will add flavour to your meals and that, is rewarding in itself.

I have a few of the other handbooks, and have found them to be very interesting, written by experts who want to share knowledge and teach others. This one is the same. I'd been thinking of starting a herb patch this year and was really glad when I saw this book was coming out. It not only tells you how to grow each plant, but has interesting information about if plants would make good companion planting, their taste and storage.

Having just made the caraway fudge, I find the recipes really straight forward to follow (and what I've tasted from scraping the saucepan it tastes good too).

Yes, I'm sure you could find the information in this book elsewhere, but it's helpful in having it in one place, and as a beginner I've really enjoyed this book and think my cooking will benefit from it (once I've actually dug the plot).

Herbs are nice to see in little pots in the kitchen, to taste them in the food and to read about in this little book. They are beautiful as flowers and smell so good. It is so lovely to see and smell thyme, rosemary, fennel, lavender, dill, basil ... they add so much to the beauty of summer - and this book adds to the joy of ones kitchen.

First the disclaimer - I took the photographs for the book which might make you think I'm biased. I can't do much about that but I can tell you that I've had the opportunity to try every one of the recipes after I'd taken the shots - every one, and I mean every one, is really fabulous. Unless you're desparate to get into the detailed botany of herbs, what most of us need is an accessible guide to growing the finest flavoured herbs and that's what this book delivers. More importantly it shows you how to get the best out of them in the kitchen. Let's be honest, most herbs are easy to grow, it's using them to their best that's the challenge for most of us - this book won't leave you short of brilliant ideas to do exactly that. I'd love to have written this book, but if I had it wouldn't have been as good as this. Go buy it!
