I think I surprised the market stall owner when I asked him for four giant boxes of chillies. But I needed them to bury Riaz Phillips in...
After realising that no one had documented the characters and tastes of Caribbean food in the UK Riaz set out to do it himself. In the end he travelled all over the country, writing and photographing a beautiful book and then setting up his own publishing company to sell it.
Thankfully he was totally up for jumping into a box full of chillies. You rock Riaz.
