Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a vast book at 447 good-quality pages. The book is well made and, even though paperback, the spine holds together well.

The book delivers on its title - as well as providing information and spices, mixes and pastes it provides excellent recipes for how to make use of those spices. The book is very up-front about the fact that some of the spices may be more difficult to acquire than others, and that you may need to go to specialist shops for some of them. Spices are from many parts of the world - India, north Africa, the Far East, southern America, and the Middle East.

The book is divided into the following:
- Introdcution
- Storage notes
- Seeds and pods
- Berries and flowers
- Roots and bark
- Spice pastes
- Spice mixes
- Bibliography
- Index

It is well worth reading the Introduction and Storage Notes, both of which give very useful information about how to purchase and preserve spices.

Under each of the main chapters each spice is dealt with in alphabetical order (Seeds and Pods begins with Ajowan, Aniseed, Annato seed etc). For each the book says what other spices the spice is related to and gives it's other names (ajowan, for example, is also known as carom) and then describes where it is native to, what it looks like and how it is used. Following the description there are then recipes. Sticking with ajowan for the moment, the two recipes that follow are beeef in indian spice paste and tandoori lobster. More common spices like pepper or saffron have many more recipes associated with them (saffron, for example, has nine). Each recipe consists of a list of ingredients in the margin of the page, a serving estimate (usually for 4) and a step by step description of how to assemble and cook the dish.
