About the Author

William Lingwood is one of Britain's best-known names in food photography. But he didn't start that way. As an oil-worker in the Middle East, he learned to cook from the books of Elizabeth David and Jane Grigson, and was inspired by the photography of Robert Fresom and Tessa Treagar. In 1990, he hung up his desert boots and picked up a camera, and his work now appears in magazines, books, and advertising campaigns. He photographed "Juices and Tonics" for Ryland Peters & Small.

Louise Pickford is a Sydney-based food writer. She contributes to several food magazines and is the author of a number of cookbooks, including "Al Fresco" and "Fast and Fresh" (both Ryland Peters & Small).

Caroline Arber began a career in photography after training as a painter. She photographs the things she enjoys--flowers, gardens, interiors, children, and food. Her work appears in many magazines including Homes & Gardens, Country Living and Red. For Ryland Peters & Small she has taken photographs for A Handful of Herbs and The Wedding Planner.

Barbara Segall is a horticulturist and writer whose work appears in "Country Living", "BBC Gardeners' World" and other magazines.

HASH(0x9f114f6c) out of 5 stars Had to have one for myself Nov. 26 2005

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I bought this book as a gift, but had to buy two so I could keep one. It covers all the standard herbs in the standard way, but what stands out in this little book are the photos of some very creative uses for the herbs. The "cooking with herbs" section is also well done and I've actually used some of the recipes! The print is very small, but the typeface is clear and simple so that helps to keep it readable.

I love the book, the recipes are great, decorating ideas and gardening tips are wonderful. Photography is gorgeous. Highly recommended if you are looking to buy a book for someone who loves to cook with herbs, decorate or garden. It is a beautifully laid out 127 page "picture" book

Yes, I am very pleased with the book! I have turned 60 and want to not only plant my own herbs, but I am also already using herbal remedies and am so glad to add this book to my collection! It is more up to date than anything else I have. It is beau-tifully illustrated also! Thank you so much for your help! I do look forward to further business with you!
