The Mediterranean
Herb Cookbook
Fresh and Savory Recipes
from the Mediterranean Garden

By Georgeanne Brennan

The Mediterranean Herb Cookbook  
Herbs are an essential ingredient in the Mediterranean diet, an uncomplicated, healthy regimen built primarily on vegetables, fruits, grains, fish, and olive oil. From the resinous tang of rosemary to the scent of thyme on a sun-warmed hillside in Provence, fresh herbs bring with them the flavors and aromas of the Mediterranean landscape. Fortunately, the Mediterranean table is easy to re-create—no matter where you live.

In the Mediterranean Herb Cookbook award-winning author, cook, and devoted gardener Georgeanne Brennan demonstrates how to grow, store, and cook delicious dishes with more than 25 different herbs. Capture the full vitality of this age-old culinary tradition in such recipes as Shrimp and Scallop Skewers with Yogurt-Wild Fennel Marinade, Saffron and Raisin Couscous with Fresh Mint, Chilled Cucumber Soup with Dill and Chives, Grilled Sea Bass in White Wine and Coriander Sauce, Walnut and Rosemary Flat Bread, and Brown Sugar Pears Baked with Lavender. Georgeanne Brennan also offers her favorite recipes and sauces, marinades, herb blends, and flavored oils and vinegars, from Tapenade and Gremolata to Nasturtium Vinegar and Herbs de Provence Oil. The Mediterranean Herb Cookbook brings to any kitchen the simple beauty of cooking with fresh herbs in the casual, flavorful Mediterranean style.
