Caz Hildebrand serves up another visual feast in her new book, The Grammar of Spice. The author of the best-selling Herbarium, now turns her attention to the world of plant seeds, fruits and roots. This compendium of over 60 different spices gathers together a wealth of information that tells a story of growers, traders, cooks and explorers. Inside each spice is looked at in turn, illuminating its place in history, its significance, origins and serving tips.
If you already have the Herbarium, you'll have guessed how beautiful this book is. Decorated throughout with motifs from Owen Jones' 'The Grammar of Ornament' and beautifully designed by Hildebrand - this is a thoroughly well-researched kitchen essential.
