"Spices have been used in kitchens for thousands of years and they are as relevant today as they have always been - versatile, healthy, economical, easy to obtain, and, more importantly, utterly delicious. However, many people find spices confusing and equate them to endless shopping lists or old jars sitting in their kitchen cupboard. Mighty Spice will change these misconceptions and show everyone how simple it is to cook with spices - and create mouth-watering recipes, full of flavour. John Gregory-Smith gathers a wonderful collection of recipes from all over the world including China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Indonesia, Malaysia, India, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, Turkey, Morocco, Syria, Mexico and the Caribbean. Want to make a chicken dish for supper, for example? Try Vietnamese Chicken Clay Pot, Cardamom Chicken or Moroccan Grilled Chicken with Broccoli and Almonds. Keen to explore new flavours for fish? Try John's Monkfish Scampi with a Peanut Sauce, Stir-fried Clams with Basil or Indian Fish Cakes. Each recipe uses easy techniques and a maximum of 5 from the 25 key spices - and delivers fantastic tastes with minimum fuss"--

The author spend THREE months in total visiting China, Vietnam, Cambodia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, India, Sri Lanka, Morocco, Turkey, Lebanon and Mexico.

He then wrote a cookbook with recipes he "discovered" on his visit. Any complex recipe he proudly "simplified" and "streamlined", often changing the major ingredients.

Result, a mediocre cookbook full of the stereotyped recipes of each countries, with a couple of decent salad ideas.
