Reading this book is a great way to discover the foods from all around the "hot " equator areas. This duo has crafted a book with style, great recipes and interesting information. Helpful information about the recipes, the culinary background and easy to read recipes, lets you try many interesting recipes. There are also rubs, a spice chart and more.There are some nice photos too. Many I tried were hits: The hot spinach sesame condiment (9.4/10) ; jicama pineapple salsa (9.4/10). Ones I want to try are the spicy noodles, mango tomatillo salsa , malasian chicken and more.
