Product Description

Review

“The most definitive, interesting, and enlightening book on peppers ever penned.” —Rick Browne, Barbecue America on PBS
 
“Dave DeWitt and Paul Bosland know more about chiles than any pair on the planet. Whether you plan to grow your own pungent pods, or just enjoy eating them, this colorful guide is truly the complete resource. Hot times ahead!” —Cheryl and Bill Jamison, The Border Cookbook, Smoke & Spice, American Home Cooking, and The Big Book of Outdoor Cooking & Entertaining
 
“This book is perfect for those of us who can’t learn enough about peppers. The illustrations and recipes for cooking with chiles are a culinary delight!” —Cindy Wilkins, two-time winner of the International Chili Championship

“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.” —Lisa Ennis, Library Journal

“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.” —Renee Enna, Chicago Tribune

“A must-have for chile lovers and a great gift, packed with fun chile facts, recipes, tips for growing and preserving, and a list of the top 100 chile peppers for gardeners.” —S. Derrickson Moore, Las Cruces Sun-News

“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.” —Jim McCausland, Fresh Dirt blog

 

From the Back Cover

This book is on fire!
Chile peppers are hot—in every sense of the word: they add culinary fire to thousands of dishes and they inspire near-fanatical devotion in those who have succumbed to their incendiary charms. In this comprehensive book, world chile experts Dave DeWitt and Paul W. Bosland have assembled all the information that anyone with an interest in chile peppers—whether food enthusiast, vegetable gardener, cook, or capsicum addict—could ever hope to find.

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
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.
