I get the urge to invest in new cookbooks every now and again. Which is a bit odd since I usually just type ingredients into google and see what comes back. But I do like to look at a nice cookbook and this is a nice one.

From the Herbfarm guy. Beautiful looking and some interesting recipes in there too. So far I have only tried one. But it prompted me to plant more anise hyssop!

Greeting Tea

2 quarts water
1 large bunch anise hyssop sprigs (2 oz)
1 large bunch lemon verbena or lemon geranium leaves (2 oz)
2 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
3 Tbsp mild honey

Bring water to boil in large saucepan. Stir in the herb sprigs. Remove from heat and cover. Steep for 15 minutes. Strain into large pitcher and stir in honey and lemon. Refrigerate until cold. Yum!

There are a fair number of meat dishes in the book, but the book makes up for it with garden and use info. Still to try, chervil avgolemono (minus chicken stock), and lentil goat cheese mint strudel and some desserts with lavender and rosemary.
