Culinary Herbs: Their Cultivation, Harvesting, Curing and Uses by Maurice Grenville Kains (1868 - 1946).

This project is now complete! All audio files can be found on our catalog page: https://librivox.org/culinary-herbs-their-cultivation-harvesting-curing-and-uses-version-2-by-maurice-grenville-kains/
Culinary Herbs may be regarded as the secret to preparing good food from antiquity to the the height of culinary art. Maurice Grenville Kains gives a thorough introduction the the subject considering the history of herbs, their cultivation and preparation. This is followed by detailed discussion of individual herbs from angelica to thyme. ( Larry Wilson)
    1. How to claim a part, and "how it all works" here To find a section to record, simply look at point 5. below at the sections. All the ones without names beside them are "up for grabs." Click "Post reply" at the top left of the screen and tell us which section you would like to read (include the section number from the left-most column in the reader list, please). Read points 6. to 8. below for what to do before, during and after your recording.
    2. New to recording? Please read our Newbie Guide to Recording!
    3. Is there a deadline? We ask that you submit your recorded sections within 1-2 months of placing your claim. Please note that to be fair to the readers who have completed their sections in a timely way, if you haven't submitted your recording(s) after two months, your sections will automatically be re-opened for other readers to claim, unless you post in this thread to request an extension. Extensions will be granted at the discretion of the Book Coordinator. If you cannot do your section, for whatever reason, just let me know and it'll go back to the pool. There's no shame in this; we're all volunteers and things happen.Please do not sign up for more sections than you can complete within the two month deadline.
    4. Where do I find the text? Source text (please only read from this text!): http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/21414
    5. Please claim sections (the numbers in the first column below)! If this is your first recording, please let me know under which name or pseudonym you'd like to appear in the LibriVox catalogue. We can also link to a personal website/blog.

With our book on the mystery of tea in the catalog, I thought this might be an interesting book. It is mostly nice short sections to read, the longest being on parsley of all things. Should be a lot of fun.

Loved the tea book and this sounds good too. If I am not too early, I would be happy to claim about 30 minutes worth in the beginning. It can be less or more...however the sections get divided.
Critical feedback is ALWAYS welcome - in the forum or via PM
