An encyclopedic reference of herbs, spices and other flavorings, author Alice Arndt has done exhaustive research that puts information about virtually every seasoning ingredient, regardless of its geographical origin, at the readerÂ’s fingertips. The perfect companion piece to any kitchen library, the book can help cooks spread their culinary wings and fly off into new creative directions.

TodayÂ’s markets offer home cooks an enormous array of possible ingredients, but many are overwhelmed at the possibilities or simply donÂ’t know how to use the endless options available to them. Well, knowledge is power and this comprehensive exploration into the world of seasoning and spices will have readers cooking with confidence in no time. Apprehension at cooking with new ingredients will soon be replaced with excitement, both for the cook and the lucky people who get to taste the results.

Arndt discusses, in detail, over 100 herbs, spices, flavorings and blends, describing not only their origins, but how to select, store and use them in order to bring out maximum flavor when cooking. She also discusses acceptable substitutions when precise ingredient called for isnÂ’t available, something those in rural areas will no doubt appreciate.

Another valuable asset to the book is the information on the worldÂ’s most important seasoning blends, along with recipes for re-creating them. This book is a must for anyone who is even semi-seriously interested in cooking or who wants to take their culinary expertise to the next level.

Harvesting and Using Summer Squash

Summer squash is one of my favorite vegetables. I love the yellow summer squash in particular. They should be harvested while still tender, when they have a "glossy" appearance and are still small. You will most likely need to harvest daily once they start to appear.
