Herbalism Cookbook Review

Review: Recipes from the Herbalist’s Kitchen by Brittany Nickerson

In Recipes from the Herbalist’s Kitchen, Brittany Wood Nickerson offers us a personal, almost magical lesson in how we are the hero in our own healing journey.  Her confidence in each of us to be able to connect with our bodies so that we may begin to take care of ourselves is evident throughout this beautifully written and photographed book.  I hesitate to call it a cookbook even though the recipes within are the kind that I have already tabbed to make again.  The vibrant green and pleasantly sweet cilantro lemonade, which I made for the Mediterranean Living crew last weekend, will definitely find itself on my table for years to come.

ozlem's turkish table

Ozlem’s Turkish Table (Interview, Turkish Recipes, Book Review)

The Turkish recipes in this cookbook are mainly from Southern Turkey and Ozlem’s hometown of Antakya. She really stresses seasonality and using the best ingredients possible. The recipes use olive oil, yogurt, bulgur wheat, eggplant, pomegranate, chili flakes, and lots of herbs and spices to create healthy, traditional recipes. When Ozlem starts trying a new recipe, the first thing she does is call her mother. This shows how these recipes are being passed down generation to generation. Ozlem is excited to share these recipes with her two children who are set to carry on the traditions.
