Présentation de l'éditeur

From modern garden master Stephen Orr comes a new, definitive book on herbs to finally replace the dusty and outdated classics. Here are entries on hundreds of plants that are extraordinarily useful in cooking, homeopathy, and more; dozens of recipes and DIY projects; and beautifully styled photographs so you know just what you're growing.

With more than 900 entries, each accompanied by brand new photography and helpful growing advice, The New American Herbal takes the study of herbs to an exciting new level. Orr covers the entire spectrum of herbaceous plants, from culinary to ornamental to aromatic and medicinal, presenting them in an easy to use A to Z format packed with recipes, DIY projects, and stunning examples of garden design highlighting herbal plantings. Learn about the herbs you've always wanted to grow (chervil, chamomile, and lovage), exotic herbs (such as Artemisia, the bitter herb used in Absinthe, or the anti-inflammatory Meadowsweet), and ornamental varieties (Monkshood and Perilla). For cooks there is indispensable guidance on planting and maintaining a bountiful kitchen garden and crafters will delight in dozens of exciting new uses for fresh, dried, and distilled herbs. Here, too, are 40 delicious recipes such as Ragu Bolognese with Fennel and Lemon Semolina Cake with Lavender, as well easy steps for projects such as a hanging herb garden and instructions on how to plant, dry, and preserve your garden’s bounty.

Meticulously researched and exhaustive in its scope, The New American Herbal is an irresistible invitation to explore the versatility of herbs in all their beauty and variety.

From the Trade Paperback edition.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 The New American Herbal by Stephen Orr 3 octobre 2014

I have many things going against me. I'm a guy, I love a good bacon cheeseburger, and I have a wife who loves to cook. So what? you may be asking. The reality is, that one of the things my wife and enjoy doing together, is learning. It really doesn't matter what it is, but I must say it usually has something to do with food, or DIY projects, or the Bible, or something of that nature. So when I saw this book, I kind of got excited. You see, about a month ago my wife made a comment about "wanting to grow her own herbs" that came to the forefront of my mind when I saw this book. Neither one of us really knows anything about herbs, much less how to use them, how to grow them, and if there are even any to avoid.

When we got this book, we noticed the amazing front cover (that was filled with great pictures and easy to read writing). As we began looking through this book, we found that we really connected well with the lay-out of the book, Not only were their well detailed pictures of the herbs, but the pages were also filled with great information about the herbs (enough to get a beginner going, and enough to inform someone who has experience with herbs already). The writing style was easy to read, and not one time did we feel stupid for not knowing something. Orr did a great job of helping us to understand each and every herb in this book. If this wasn't enough, Orr took the time to provide some simple recipes (which made my wife excited) using some of the herbs discussed, and showed exactly what to do with them. If this wasn't enough (I know....that's plenty), Orr also showed us how to take care of, and grow these herbs ourselves, and when to grow them.

We are extremely happy with this book. Thanks for the great resource Stephen Orr.

We received this book for free for this review from Blogging For Books.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Beautiful, easy-to-read, and comprehensive. 15 novembre 2014

I have always had a fascination with herbs - the variety, the versatility, the lore. Hiking the trails of the Pacific Northwest as a child, my Dad taught me about edible plants and herbs that grow wild here, and shared with me the Native American wisdom he had collected throughout his life. Later, I quietly marveled at how my children's Grandma Edith, who is a treasure trove of herbal insight, was always mixing up one herbal home remedy or another. (I remember entire one year when her whole house was brewing with calendula potions.) So it was with great interest that I opened the pages of Stephen Orr's The New American Herbal.
The New American Herbal makes exploring the world of herbs interesting and accessible, and holds something for everyone from novice to expert herbalist. This beautifully photographed book is comprehensive compendium that covers the entire spectrum of herbaceous plants: culinary, aromatic and medicinal.

Meticulously researched information is alphabetically arranged by common name, and presented in an interesting, easy to understand format. The Table of Contents organizes information into Herb Basics, Herbal Preparations, Garden Projects, Kitchen Projects, and Specialty Herbs, followed by an "Herbs A to Z" page. Each featured herb is presented on a page of its own that details its history, size, season, safety, planting requirements, and includes at least one full-page color photograph opposite. The author shares his own experiences with each herb, fascinating details, appropriate suggestions for use, and everything else you might think of when it comes to herbs. Minor herbs find their way into the sidebars, making for more than 900 entries in all.

I especially appreciated the guidance and ideas about how to grow and cook herbs; and while no means a cookbook in the traditional sense, I found many of the forty-some recipes included inspiring, motivating me to extend my reach in world of culinary herbs. I was equally impressed with the information presented, both fact and lore, on healing properties of various medicinal herbs.

The New American Herbal would make a perfect holiday gift for your favorite cook or kitchen gardener, or anyone who wants to learn more about herbs.

Par OceanDreamer - Publié sur Amazon.com
The New American Herbal is a comprehensive guide with a little something for everyone,whether you are just getting into herbs, are wanting too add to your existing knowledge or are already an expert. Every page offers something useful, from herb basics, drying your herbs, homemade dried spice blends, medicinal herbs, and essential oils. Every herb has its own page explaining its origin,height,seasons,safety and more. There are herb garden projects, herbal beverages and even delicious recipes! This book is packed from cover to cover with beautiful photos showcasing the herbal beauty of flavor and health.

What a great book! Much more than I was expecting. Almost an information overload, in a good way. There are so many great ideas for herbal gardens and herb uses. The information provided about each herb is easy to understand and very helpful, with ways to make a good cup of tea even. (some of the herbs) The recipes look delicious, though I haven't had the opportunity to make one yet. I cannot wait to learn more about herbs and get my garden started! I will definitely be telling others about this book.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Herbs A to Z 3 octobre 2014
Par Genevieve DeGuzman - Publié sur Amazon.com
If I ever wanted to transform myself into some kind of apothecary/herbalist guru, this would be the book to have. The New American Herbal by Stephen Orr is a hefty encyclopedia of the plants and botanical wonders that have been staples in cooking, homeopathy, aromatherapy, and the full spectrum of medicinal and culinary crafts.

Entries (there are 145 of them, a sizeable sample) are listed alphabetically and feature informative, at-a-glance type sidebars, lovely histories of each herb, and recipes for dishes and tonics where appropriate. I also appreciated the various instructional sections that comprise the beginning of the book like: "Herb Basics," which describes the various classes of herbs (e.g., adaptogens, analgesics, bitters, digestives) and the families of herbs (e.g., the mints, asters, laurels, nightshades, among others). Then there are sections on working with herbs--how to tend them, dry them, extract the oils, and work with the oils. I recently started making my own skincare lotions and serums using essential oils and found that section useful, if a little breezy. Gardeners will appreciate the suggested backyard projects. There is even a section on "Controversial Herbs" that I found fun to read (ahem, coca leaves and ephedra get a little attention).

Using herbs for scent, flavor, and as curatives is as old as time and this book offers a lovely modern update. This isn't a comprehensive book by any means—such a book would probably weigh 20 lbs and be completely unwieldly—but Orr's book is a splendid quick reference.

Par Renee K - Publié sur Amazon.com
I have had an interest the last few years in learning more about herbs and even essential oils. I have been on the lookout for a comprehensive guide on herbs.

What do I like about this book?

The herbs are listed in order from A-Z for ease of finding. Every herb has a full color picture that you can easily identify. I really liked the picture of each herb in this book. It gives you the herb type, origin, how to grow successfully, and some information on safety of the herb. Another feature I like on each herb is that it tells me what zone for growing the herbs in successfully. The book tells you if the herb is a perennial or annual plant. Another thing I like is that the herbs are listed in the common and botanical name. That is very helpful to know both names of herbs.

The chapters are intriguing. Some of my favorite topics covered in this book:

Harvesting Herbs
Propagating Herbs
Herbs that Heal Wounds
Herb Drying Techniques
Working with Essential Oils
Garden Projects
Kitchen Projects
Trees and Shrubs Used as Herbs
Herbs and Older Traditions
Controversial Herbs

That is just a few topics covered in this book. Some of the information is just the basics but it gives you a bit of information to get started.

There are also 45 recipes using varies herbs. Most of the recipes are pretty simple recipes that are appealing.

The back of the book has a nice section for resources:

Herbal Writings from the Past
Recommended Reading and Sources
Educational and Online Sources
Herb Seeds and Plants where to buy
Dried Herbs, Extracts, Essential Oils, and Herbal Products and where to buy them.
Some Public Gardens to visit.

This is a very impressive book on herbs. I wish it had a bit more information on medicinally using the herbs. Some herbs have more information than others. I will be used often in my home from everything from growing herbs, to drying, and some basic information.
