IACP Cookbook Award Finalist
Nobody knows herbs and spices like Tony Hill, owner of Seattle's
famed World Merchants Spice, Herb & Teahouse. Now, in this
acclaimed book, Hill gives us a comprehensive guide to these
essential flavorings based on his travels around the globe.
Blending culinary history, the lore of the spice routes, and his
own inimitable tasting notes, he profiles more than 125 herbs and
spices, ranging from the familiar to the exotic. He gives practical
information and advice, including how best to use nine popular
chiles, what distinguishes true cinnamon from cassia cinnamon, and
why it makes a difference where your bay leaf comes from--plus more
than 75 delicious recipes for distinctively spiced dishes. To top
it all off, Hill reveals the secret recipes for 85 of his signature
herb and spice blends, including barbecue rubs, mulling spices,
chili powders, chai mixes, and curry powders. Complete with 185
color photographs, The Spice Lover's Guide to Herbs & Spices is
an indispensable culinary reference that is both a pleasure to cook
with and enjoyable to read.
"Hill . . . is way ahead of cookbook authors who cling to
parsley in a cilantro world. . . . This is the book for anyone who
has been lucky enough to find grains of paradise or Aleppo pepper
and wonders where to go from there."
--Regina Schrambling, Los Angeles Times
"Even those who never cook may find themselves often dipping
into this intriguing read."
--CeCe Sullivan, The Seattle Times
