This month in the Mastery Challenge, we’re focused on preserving herbs. If you’re still wondering what you should make this time around, let me suggest a trio of cookbooks to help you on your path.
First up is The Pesto Cookbook by Olwen Woodier. This book contains a varied wonderland of pestos, pistous, and herb purees as well as number of recipes to help you use up what you’ve made. If you’re looking to move beyond the traditional flavor combinations, this book is for you.
If natural sodas, tisanes, and infusions are more your game, Quench by Ashley English is a natural fit for you. This book came out five years ago, but it is timeless and useful.
Another option in the drink department is Emily Han’s Wild Drink and Cocktails. It employs a number of herbs in the various tonics and syrups and offers up a different perspective than Ashley’s book does.
If you’re off and running on this month’s challenge, where are you finding your inspiration?
