Great book for people who don't know much about spices and herbs and would like to know how to use them. The book contains a great yet simple explanation about the history of spices, tips on how to use the spices to get the best of their flavors, as well as which spices go together and with which type of food. The book is very easy to read and goes straight to the point. I highly recommend it!
