One thought on “The Cooks Herb Garden (April book)

  1. Overall comment of the book:
    4 smiley faces beause……
    THis is an excellent guide understanding herbs and how to use herbs for cooking and how to bring our the “aroma” of the herb (referance my personal study with essential oils). ALSO discussed basic gardening practices (gardening101), and learned more ID of citrus andonions are clasified as herbs.
