Herbs and Spices use??

How do you use different herbs and spices in cooking and baking?  I think I need to word this differently, since what I am really looking for is the Taste from different Herbs and spices, since I do know the difference and some basics.  What I want to know is the Taste they may impart to the food I am preparing, such as Red Pepper tends to make things hot, Parsley tends to give things a sort of "lemony flavor", Cinnamon adds some sweetness and helps enhance the sweetness of some foods.  The particular spices and herbs I want to know about are Tarragon, Cumin, Thyme, Saffron, Marjoram,Corriander and Cardamon.  These are spices I want to try, but am not sure exactly what they do for the taste of food, and which foods they are best used in and how much!?!

How toxic is smoking food with wine barrel wood which are all treated with linseed oil ?

I was told that its toxic to smoke food with wine barrel wood because its treated with linseed oil to make them waterproof and to keep contamination from going thru the wood. Ive searched all over the internet but cant find any info on the health effects of the smoke. I see many people selling this wood and I have tried it for smoking food but don't want to sell something that's harmful to eat. Any for sure info as it could be a legal problem for me. Chow. Lance

Food as art

A few photos from the BBC -Photographer Carl Warner has painstakingly captured all kinds of food in a series of still lifes. He says his 'Foodscapes' were partly inspired by healthy eating campaigns. But they have not persuaded his own children to take up the five-a-day pledge.The photos must be shopped in some way, because they were apparently "taken in layers", so that part of the image didn't wilt whilst the rest was being prepared.Link to other images: http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/in_pictures/7186989.stm
