From the cre­ator of Her­bar­ium comes this ex­plo­sive hot ti­tle about chillies. The name chilli comes from an Aztec word and pep­per from Colum­bus as it was thought the plant was re­lated to spicy black pep­per. Il­lus­trated in the cre­ator’s in­ven­tive way, this book gives de­tails of nearly 200 va­ri­eties, how to grow and cook them and also giv­ing their heat units rang­ing from 1,000 to over 2 mil­lion Scov­ille units.
