Spice and Herb Bible

    By

    The new edition of the IACP award-winning book on spice. Cooks everywhere use spices and herbs to enhance food flavours and to create new taste combinations and sensations. From bay leaves to lemongrass to vanilla beans, a well-stocked kitchen must have a wide selection of herbs and spices. This expanded and completely revised new edition is the culmination of Ian Hemphill's lifelong experience in the spice industry. It is a fascinating and authoritative guide. Hemphill describes a wide range of global herbs and spices used in modern kitchens either alone or in wonderful blends. He completely demystifies the art of combining herbs and spices and home cooks can meet and enjoy a world of flavours previously found only at internationally inspired restaurants. He provides the 'inside story' based on his extensive experience in this ancient and stimulating industry. The third edition features 6 new spice entries for a total of 97, 102 new recipes, 33 new curry spice blends and 17 new spice blends. There is also a fascinating section, 'Travels in the Spice Trade', that includes his personal anecdotes and travel stories. The interior pages have been completely redesigned and reorganized with full colour throughout. All the entries are listed alphabetically with a detailed colour photo of every herb and spice. There are also comprehensive and handy storage suggestions with details for every herb and spice. A full-circle culinary experience in the world of herbs and spices, this new edition is still the definitive reference in its field.
