I’m always on the lookout for a good cookbook, especially when it comes to authentic spicy food from around the world!

“The Little Book of Spicy Hot Appetizers, Dips, and Sauces” by Megan Jones is exactly what its name implies.

A good cookbook, in my opinion, is one that accurately informs the reader how to duplicate the dishes created by the author.  An even better book educates the reader on why certain ingredients were chosen and explains the cooking process such that one can go beyond the recipe with an understanding of how different variations might affect the desired outcome.  Jones does just exactly this.

Along with a variety of spicy recipes, Jones provides a generous background on the history of spicy foods, their ingredients, impact on the cultures they came from, health benefits, and interactions with other elements of the meal both food and drink.  Through this information, I clearly understood what each ingredient “brought to the table” (pun intended!).

No matter how hot or mild you like your food, this book has a recipe for you.  The Little Book of Spicy Hot Appetizers, Dips, and Sauces is $2.99 on kindle.

Note: A complementary copy of this work was provided in return for a review.
