    Herbs and Spices Cookbooks and Recipes


    Herbs and spices Herbs (plants which are valued for the taste or smell that they add to food), and spices (dried bark, fruit, roots or seeds added to food), are very useful cooking. They can greatly enhance the taste of our food, and the choice of herbs and spices is one of the most important things in imparting interesting and distinctive tastes to particular recipes and national cuisines.

    Some popular herbs and spices include:
    • Allspice (also known as "Jamaican pepper", "newspice", or "pimento") - This is a spice that comes from the dried unripe fruit of the Pimenta dioica plant. The name "allspice" comes from the fact that when the English first encountered the spice, they thought that it combined the flavors of cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg. Allspice is widely used in Caribbean cuisine, especially Jamaican cuisine, and also in Middle Eastern cuisine.

    • Aniseed (also known as "Anise") - Aniseed is a flowering plant, the seeds of which are sweet and very aromatic. It is used in confectionary and to flavor many different kinds of drinks including champurrado (Mexico), Ouzo (Greece), Raki (Turkey), Sambuca (Italy), and some forms of root beer.

    • Basil - Basil is a herb. It is important in Italian cuisine (including as one of main ingredients of pesto), and is also used in Thai cuisine and Vietnamese cuisine. Usually fresh basil is used, and it is added at towards the end of the cooking process, since it tends to lose its flavor if cooked for more than brief period.
