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.
