I have just found the ultimate Chili recipe book.
The Chili Year Book has 52 recipes, one for each week of the year. It is clearly written and bound to lay flat on the worktop. The recipes are varied, delicious and easy to follow for even a modest cook using chicken, mince, fish, and vegetarian ingredients.
At only £ 8.99 it makes a very acceptable Christmas present. As your local bookseller.
