The world of herbs and spices is as savory and enticing as it is expansive and confusing. With all the powders, jars, and plants available--often at great expense--how do you know what to buy and how to use it? When should you go fresh, and when is dried preferable?

The questions are endless, but the Herb & Spice Companion is here to clear up the mysteries surrounding everything from common kitchen herbs to exotic spices (starting with the difference between herbs and spices ).
This comprehensive yet easy-to-understand guide offers profiles for the world's best herbs and spices, from allspice to wasabi and everything in between.
