I had already made the green apple salsa and the tomato salsa (Divorced Eggs)from the preview before ordering and was suitably wowed. I've made the tomato and chilli jam (very chuffed) and the green chilli con carne as well in the last two days and my partner said he felt like crying, they were so good (I hadn't told him then that I had nearly cried earlier!). I like the way that the order is spice sectioned - it is very easy to find recipes. I also liked the smiling photos of the creators: Emma and Stevie.
I missed the TV series - I was just interested in a cook book that was spice derived but not necessarily Indian as we already have Madhur Jaffrey and a great Indian takeaway.
I love the way you get the socio-economic history of the spices linked with the generating countries and the compassionate acknowledgement of the West's colonial and slave-trading past. It is altogether holistic in its approach and there are spice remedies as well. Next on the list is Pears Poached in Cloves and Red Wine.
This is a book that is fascinating on many different levels. Try and flip through it and you will find you have taken at least an hour.
I have a post-script caveat unfortunatly and am taking my 5 stars down to 4 stars. The gluten free salt and pepper brownie recipe touts up its gluten status and there is no flour in the ingredient list. However! The recipe instructs you to fold in the flour. This utterly confused me! Another issue is the tablespoon of ground cloves in the orange and clove cake? I just put a teaspoon in as I think that is quite a lot.
My recommendation is to get this treasure to add to your cookbook collection - I also will buy some to pass on to my friends.....
