Woodward, Penny

This book lists 100 Asian herbs and vegetables, with information on identifying growing and using them. Each is accompanied by a colour photograph for easy identification.

The term ‘Asian herbs and vegetables’ describes a wide array of plants that are grown by Asian people and used by them in varying ways in what is loosely known as ‘Asian cuisine’. The demand for Asian ingredients, including herbs and vegetables, has grown in the last ten years for several reasons. The purpose of this book is to introduce people from Western backgrounds to some of these ‘new’ herbs and vegetables and their associated range of new flavours, textures, shapes and scents.  This book makes it possible to identify and grow these herbs and vegetables and suggests some of the ways they can be used.
