There is a huge variety of herbs and spices from which to choose and with the help of good supermarkets and suppliers, we are almost spoilt for choice. But never fear, lovespicyfood will take you all the way through, from which one to use, how to store it and then to the right cooking techniques. A step-by-step guide to the world of spicy food.

But don't worry, this is not a campaign to convert you to eating nothing but spicy foods (although global domination could be fun :-) ). We just want to open your eyes to the possibilities and benefits, not to mention the sheer joy of it! Come with us and experience this exhilarating, delicious and oh-so-divine world.
