Review:

"Lucinda Hutson’s garden is something of a legend in Austin. An invitation from Lucinda, an authority on ethnic herbs and an accomplished cook, to sample a new dish or special punch in her flamboyant setting is a guaranteed fiesta. . . . And her gusto for entertaining and cooking is exemplified in her recipes [in] The Herb Garden Cookbook." (Southern Living)

". . . a classic. . . . Making use of both traditional and little-known regional herbs, it’s a cookbook for contemporary tastes, emphasizing Oriental and Mexican flavors. . . . The photographs sparkle with the spirit of Hutson’s Texas herb gardens and bright kitchen." (Herb Companion)
