Chillis are the new superfood. Capsaicin, the compound that creates the heat in chillis, has powerful anti-cancer properties and chillis have twice the amount of Vitamin C found in citrus fruits. Chillis now have their own dedicated festivals and are taking their place in healthy menus, adding an uplifting kick to snacks and dishes. Spices, too, are packed with phytonutrients, essential oils, antioxidants, minerals and vitamins, and their sweet, zesty, and smoky tastes have great allure. Chilli & Spice has over 100 recipes with different levels of punch, with key ingredients ranging from the hottest known chile, the Carolina Reaper, to ginger and cinnamon, spices that can be used in both sweet and savoury dishes. Recipes include sticky Bourbon Chicken Wings, Shakshuka Eggs with Spicy Tomato Sauce, Gratin of Green Chillis, Hot Sesame Beef, and Spiced Pumpkin Tartlets. Embrace this fiercely delicious collection and keep your taste buds spiced up and on fire.
