Pequena biografia
Jill Norman is the former editor of the Penguin Cookery Library in the UK and the author of several cookbooks, including the bestselling Complete Book of Spices (1990). Encyclopedia Britannica asked Jill to be their expert to update all of their entries on herbs and spices. Other books include Winter Food, The New Penguin Cookery Book, and Is There a Nutmeg in the House? Jill created the Penguin Cookery Library in the 1960s and 1970s, bringing many new authors to the list. She has since become a Glenfiddich trophy winner in her own right. She worked with Elizabeth David for many years and is the literary trustee of the Elizabeth David estate. In 2007 she published The Cook's Book. She lives in The Hague with her husband, an antiquarian bookseller.

This is a very pretty little book, with some solid basic tea info and pictures. It is also so extremely and constantly clearly written by an English person who is real nostalgic for imperialism. It is very funny how immediately it becomes clear that any time the phrase "the public" is used, it exclusively refers to the middle- and upper-class English public. It is also genuinely kind of horrifying. So like. Can I recommend it? Not sure. Will I probably keep it to use as a quick reference text now and again? Yeah, I suspect so.… (mais)

THIS IS THE BEST BOOK EVER.
Okay.
THE BEST REFERENCE BOOK EVER!

Maybe it's because I have a major tomorrow, or maybe it's because I am actually interested in herbs and spices, but... I just read this book from cover to cover and helped my mom identify a couple of spices we have at home and a few awesome uses for them (Black cardamom? Yeah? Awesome Indian food awaits!)

This book is very, VERY, well researched, and quite accurate. You cannot go wrong by buying this, since it's also EXTREMELY BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED. The photography, the indexing... *sigh*. It's just beautiful in every imaginable way.

Now, what's in it?

Herbs.
And.
Spices.

Everything. About. Herbs. AND. Spices.
How to store, how to grow, what parts to use... etc.
And pictures.
Pictures everywhere.
Pictures of everything.


Sheesh just buy it already.

Indeholder "Tebusken", "Teens behandling", "Tehandel, teblandinger", "Emballage", "Tedrikning", "Kinesiske sorte teer", "Kina - røget, grøn og oolong", "Indien", "Ceylon", "Japan", "Eksotiske teer", "Urteteer", "Teens historie", "Te og englænderne", "Te og danskerne", "Tepotter", "Opskrifter", "Register".

Lille sød bog og ikke ret meget indhold. Noget af det er så kort formuleret at det nærmest er forkert, fx beretningen om briternes start af tedyrkning i Indien.
Bogen er del af en serie: Køkkenets Lille Bibliotek, der også tæller "Kryddergrønt - i salatskålen", "Søde sager - til madlavning" og "Krydderier - fra tørrede rødder og frugter". Hele serien er formentligt lige undværlig.… (mais)

Great photos to help with identification and nice tips for buying, storing, using, and tasting herbs and spices. I like that non-traditional herbs and such are included--cat nip! The few recipes given in the back look like a good way to get your feet wet with unfamiliar ingredients without going all-out with a new Indian or Thai, etc., cookbook.
