My husband loves quality spicy food. But it has to be done right. Actual spicy food cooked properly, not just food with spices tossed in to make it hot. This book is great, because it gives him great recipes for cooking proper spicy food that will taste great. Because of the variety of peppers available, it also allows him to cook food that not only will he like, but that the entire family will eat as well. If you like spicy foods or just want to try using peppers in a different way, then this is definitely a great book to check out.
