The World's Best Spicy Food - Lonely PlanetIf you are like me, I always have my eye out for new cookery books that bring me new things to try, there are a lot of repeats around at the moment and if I know what I am looking for I can find it the internet, but what I like about this book is that a lot of the recipes are for things I have not heard of before.

While some of the recipes are things I have already tried, most of them are new, at least to me. With 100 spicy recipes this book is a little gold mine. The introduction is written by Tom Parker Bowles with the recipes contributed by the likes of Daniel McCronhan, Paul Bloomfield and many other writers associated with the Lonely Planet guide books.

With the recipes coming from experts in their local areas they are pretty diverse. I loved the look of Tienlon Ho’s “Mapo Doufu” from Sichuan and Shawn Low’s Korean recipe for “Tteokbokki”, both of which are complete new to me and I doubt I would have found them with this book.

There are of course some staple recipes like Mole, Buffalo Wings, Piri-Piri Chicken, the even the UK gets a mention for Tikka Masla, Mustard and Piccalilli.

At only £14.99 from all good book shops, this a book I can recommend, I think we will all find something new to try.
