Guides to herbs and spices

I’m doing a bit more cooking since I took early retirement – Ruth is still working, so it falls to me to prepare the evening meal in the week. I like messing about modifying recipes and these guides to herbs and spices are a useful summary of their properties:

The Kitchen’s Quick Guide to Every Herb and Spice in the Cupboard describes each herb or spice and tells you what characteristics they have and what foods they complement.

Frontier’s Tips For Using Spices looks at things the other way around and tells you for each type of food which spices and herbs will pep it up.

  1. Thank you so much, this was very interesting. I was actually born in Madrid ( not telling when though!) but moved around various parts of europe and finally settled in England when I was 7. I dont remember an awful lot of the few years I was in spain, but the smell of spanish food always seems to ring a bell in me or something. Funny, how I dont remember anything except the smells,isn’t it! I even found a internet site dedicated to spanish recipe, which gave me great delight and thought I really should to share. Anyway, thank you again. I’ll get my son to add your cast to my rss app…
