Cooking With Chillies, The World's Favourite Spice

By Kay Plunkett Hogge

  • E-Book
  • £P.O.R.

Spice up your kitchen with over 120 vibrant chilli recipes from around the world.

Meet the chilli. It's a fiery little fruit. From humble origins in a tucked-away corner of Latin America, it has found its way into the food of more than half the world.

Intrepid food writer Kay Plunkett-Hogge is on its trail, following the chilli from the Americas to Europe, and along the spice routes to the Middle East, India, China and beyond. With more than 120 delicious recipes from around the world, including Thai, Indian and Mexican favourites, plus tantalising desserts with a difference, Kay showcases the chilli's extraordinary versatility, celebrates its rich and nomadic history, and discovers the secrets of its success.

Parkland

Dave Cullen
Authors:
Dave Cullen

**The exclusive story behind the Parkland, Florida shooting and the survivors' campaign for gun control that caught the world's attention**This time it was different. The uprising had begun.When Dave Cullen went to Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in the wake of the shootings, he saw something radically different from what he had witnessed anywhere else in his twenty years covering the mass shootings epidemic. A handful of remarkable survivors seized control of their story, galvanized a nation, and built a movement to capture its energy at lightening speed. Parkland is Cullen's intimate account of the birth of a movement and its stunning metamorphosis in the wake of the tragedy that ignited a revolution.The Parkland kids had a bold vision: they recognized their white, suburban privilege, and fused their uprising with young black activists to combat gun violence towards kids of every colour. With unrivalled access granted by these students and their families, extensively researched and beautifully told, Parkland is a testament to change and a perceptive examination of this pivotal moment in American culture.(P)2019 Harper Audio

A shy young Mexican woman moves to Paris to study literature. Cecilia has few friends, and a morbid fascination with watching the funerals taking place in Père-Lachaise cemetery outside her apartment. She suddenly strikes up a close relationship with her neighbour, a sickly young man who shares her interest in death and believes we can communicate with the dead. After coming to entirely depend on him for company and routine, Cecilia is left devastated by his decision to go to Sicily for his health, and is left alone in an unfriendly city once more.Claudio, meanwhile, lives in New York with the submissive, quiet, but very wealthy Ruth. She makes few demands of him, while acquiescing to all his desires and indulging his obsessive, misogynistic nature. He meets Cecilia by chance when visiting a friend in Paris and their two very different worlds collide with transformative consequences.With startling intensity, humour and insight, Nettel conjures a dark fable about obsession, denial and our modern ability to reach out across the globe in search of love.Translated from the Spanish by Rosalind Harvey
