So Much Information!

Herbs and Spices is a great resource. I love that Susan Hollister gives a history of the spices as well as how to use them. There's so much information here, from growing to preserving to how they taste. This book even discusses the health benefits of the various herbs.


I love garlic, so I was fascinated with the section that discussed how garlic has been used throughout history. I plan on using the instructions on how to grow it. In fact, I plan on using a lot of the growing instructions. I feel like, with the information in this book, I am more confident in starting my own garden. 


The section on lavender was interesting as well. I don't think about using it in food much, but I think I'm going to try it now. I also didn't know that the tea has some health perks.


Any experimental chef (or a mom trying to feed her family healthier meals) should have this book. This is the kind of book that should stay in the kitchen and be referenced over and over.

Relaxing Read

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to this book. Somehow I managed to find the time to listen to it completely in one setting. I description and uses of all herbs and spices will to be very useful. Particularly for me, the additional uses over and above the cooking options. The narration was at the proper speed to be able to listen and take notes at the same time. I love learning new things and this book provides the opportunity to find new uses for the herbs and spices you have growing in your area. I have read and enjoyed other books by Susan Hollister and this one did not disappoint. I highly recommend this audio book.

Cooking will never be dull again I promise!

Herbs and Spices the Top 100 Best Herbs and Spices from Around the World is just one of the fantastic books by Susan Hollister. Whether you are looking to create new and exciting dishes, or you want something to spice up your usual recipes this book has everything that you need.
I never realized how much of a difference herbs and spices can make and also how many there are on offer, whether you stick to the basic better known herbs such as tarragon, mint, basil and dill or you want to be more adventurous and incorporate spices such as Sumac, Juniper Berry or Garam Masala there is everything you need in this book.
When it comes to cookery I have always been one for getting my recipe book out and standing it up with the page propped open, and more times than I care to mention the book has fallen on the floor, the page flipped over leaving me not only frustrated not to mention the ingredients that also ended anywhere other than where it should! Then I discovered that I could get my favourite cookery books in an audio format, which really was music to my ears.
I found the audio content on how herbs and spices can help to heal the body really interesting and although you can read the text, it is far better to be able to rewind the audio book as you can take the information on board so much easier. The great narrative and information laid out in this book does not only make cooking far easier, but it is a story as such that you can listen to at any time of night or day.
When it comes to general health herbs and spices make a delicious way to not only flavour your food, but you can heal your body too. Spices and herbs can relieve many ailments from the common cold to lower cholesterol or boosting your basic health on a day to day basis. Being able to listen to what these herbs and spices can do and make notes at the same time is something I would recommend to anyone and I particularly like the option to use herbal healing rather than potent shop brought cures.
So, whether you are looking for ways that your daily life can be enriched by herbs and spices or you simply what to spice up your food and awakening your taste buds it is all here in this book. Never again will your food lack flavour, just follow Susan Hollister’s advice and you can’t go wrong.
