Each chilli pepper is a little anarchist demanding to be known in its own right. With over 2,000 varieties, and a dizzying array of flavours, shapes, sizes and colours, chillies are a key ingredient in everything from our favourite curries to drinks and desserts. But even the most experienced chilli fanatic needs a guide to which variety to choose and how hot they should go on the infamous Scoville scale. This essential kitchen companion introduces the nuances, creativity and versatility of 100 members of the crazy chilli family, telling their stories and offering advice on how to deploy the little demons to best effect. Organized by heat level, with a running scale throughout, the book beautifully evokes the classic look of Mexican printed oilcloth in the four process-printing colours: cyan, magenta, yellow and black. From the world's hottest chillies, such as the evocative Carolina Reaper, Komodo Dragon and Ghost pepper, to everyday favourites, such as the jalapeno, cayenne and bell pepper, each variety is presented with the essentials on flavour, usage and preparation. This stunning addition to any cook's collection exalts the rebellious chilli family in all its technicolour glory and is captivating reading for chilli hot-heads and culinary experimenters alike.
