Cooks either buy them or grow them, but herbs have become essential ingredients in the average kitchen. Herbal entrepreneurs actively engaged in aspects of growing, selling, teaching, or writing have contributed recipes to this compendium featuring tasty mixtures aimed at enhancing everything from appetizers to entrees. Blends to flavor cheese spreads and potato dishes are followed by spicy combinations for pastas, soups, vegetables, and main dishes of meat, fish, or poultry. Ethnic fare and blended herbs for assorted teas complete the offerings. Of particular interest are the brief introductions to individual herbalists.
