Take your cooking to the next level by learning how to use culinary herbs to boost the flavor quotient of your food. From basil-rich pesto to tarragon-infused sauces, we’ve got you covered in this simple beginner’s guide.

And if you’re interested in growing your own herbs, there’s useful gardening information to help bring better-tasting, freshly harvested herbs to your cooking! The guide ends with an accumulation of recipes for drinks, sauces, appetizers, salads, and more. Whether you’re just beginning to experiment with herbs or looking for new recipes to try, this guide will prove its worth again and again.
