When one grows up on an herb farm and then proceeds to spend the next 40 years working in the herb and spice industry, it is easy to assume that everyone feels comfortable with using herbs and spices. Of course this is far from the reality, and over the years I have been asked many questions, from the bizarre to the basic, What people want most is an insight into the world of spices from someone who works with these miracles of nature everyday.
In The Spice and Herb Bible I have set out to give the reader "the inside story," based on the learning and experiences I have assimilated in this ancient and stimulating industry.
It seems appropriate to begin by explaining some of the basics and sharing interesting facts that apply to all herbs and spices. Because spices are so important in determining the signatures of foods from different countries, I have provided some background information and a list of the key spice flavors that are used in some of the world's mot popular cuisines. Part Two looks at individual herbs and spices, in alphabetical order by common English name (to assist in looking up a reference quickly). Part Three deals with the art of combining spices. Once you have an understanding of the individual herb and spice characteristics it is a logical next step to bring surprisingly diverse flavors together to create completely unimaginable results. I hope you will find this interesting and stimulating, and most importantly will feel that the art of using spices successfully in everyday cooking has been demystified and made more enjoyable.
