A Modern Herbal by Margaret GrieveThis for the person who loves to cook using herbs .But this hell lot more than just parsley, sage, rosemary & thyme as song says. But Belladonna, Henbane & the different types of Opium Poppy. Not what would expect in cookery book.
For instance we have the flower of the Scullcap for insomnia,Willow for rheumatism but this goes on & on. This A-Z of every herb plant that exorcist some taste but hell lot of unheard of & so very dangerous deadly poisoners the sort used in an episode of Midsummer Murders or Miss Marple..At end of the day this fantastic book & if can find a copy buy it .My H/B copy is 1975 reprint copy that I got at special interest cookery book fair in 1990s at Durham city & cost ?35 far cry from its ?12 in 1975.
The biggest problem is that this not book to read it is book you need in your kitchen its a special reference book so Dont poison your mother in law with Monkshood or Death cap unless you want 25ys in jail.
This fun book because find out everything you didnt know about mint or herbs, mosses, roots that no one heard of since Witchfinder General burnt his last Witch.
