Product Description

Review

"This book will be the standard reference on chile peppers for a long time to come. I give it my three-chile rating, which translates as hot-hot-hot."


"This is the most comprehensive chile pepper book I've seen."


"If one must only have one book on chiles, this should be it."


“A narrow topic, you say? Not with the 100 top varieties covered and 85 convincing reasons for embracing more than just our beloved jalapenos and serranos.”


"This is a nicely done work that will fit well within any culinary or gardening collection and will appeal to both the novice and the expert gardener. Recommended."

This beautiful book does not disappoint - it delivers as the title suggests. It is packed with valuable information on choosing and growing peppers. There are not lots of recipes (I wish there were more) but I love the ones I have made including the Ancho Chile Dry Rub, Dry Jerk Seasoning, Chili Powder, Orange Zest Red Chile Butter, etc. There are many more I want to try such as the Oregano-Garlic Green Chile Vinegar, Sichuan Ginger Oil, Piri Piri Oil, Tiger Prawns in Coconut Milk Curry, etc. I love that this book offers some unusual recipes rather than just the usual. One example is Cranberry and Chipotle Tiramisu, Red Chile Pumpkin Chiffon Pie and so on.

There is a very useful section on Diseases and Pests. The Composting chapter is also interesting. Just love the chapter on Drying, Smoking, Powders and Spice Blends in particular. Heck - the entire book is interesting!

The contents are well researched and more complete than anywhere else. It definitely inspires me to research and grow more chiles next year, even in Alberta which doesn't exactly have the longest summers! But I can hardly wait to experiment.

You must get this book if you are obsessed with anything chile related. You will not regret it.
