This book is very cheaply put together. Almost newsprint like feel to the paper. All black and white print. Almost no pictures, including with the recipes. Speaking of which, are 3/4 of the book. Some of them look ok (not that you can see what they look like, just read them) but honestly you'll do better making a Thai dish from a Thai cook book. If your a fan of the hot, then you probably have lots of cookbooks for spicy foods already. It's really just padding.

The beginning 1/4 of the book has some interesting information, but would of been much better in a magazine type layout with lots of pictures and sidebars. An ok book I guess but not very well presented, and full of recipes, I'll probably not use.

HASH(0xa2b103e4) out of 5 stars Yeah, it's ok. June 4 2013
By Professor Hardcore - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
It is a really informative book if you are looking to learn about background information on chilis and/or recipes that incorporate hot sauce or spicy sauces. However, there is only ONE "hot sauce" recipe in the whole book. The rest are just literally hot sauces--sauces that are hot. So, while it has a lot of information, if you are looking for a book that has lots of "hot sauce" recipes a la standards like Tabasco, this one is not for you.

HASH(0xa2b13594) out of 5 stars The Everything Hot Sauce Book: From Growing to Picking and Preparing June 21 2012
By HC - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
Here is an excellent primer on chile peppers, covering "nearly" everything one would expect for a book of this type.
Full of interesting snippets about how chile peppers have evolved, been transported, traded throughout history and around the world, it includes just the right amount of information without getting lost in the details. There is abundant and useful instructions explaining how to germinate, plant, grow, harvest and preserve chile peppers. Then through the 150 recipes, ranging from basic spice rubs and salsa's to entree's and beverages the reader has a road map on how incorporate them into an everyday diet.
Unfortunately, the author has not included any homemade hot sauce recipes with basic bottling techniques or anything on the fermentation process used in producing the unique flavor found in popular sauces like Tabasco,Texas Pete,Crystal,etc. But supplemental information can be found at sites like TheHotPepper.com and other links and websites listed in the appendix.

This is a great book, obviously well researched and a valuable resource for any aspiring "Chile Head".
The recipes alone are worth the price of the book. My current copy in on loan from our public library,but I will be buying a personal copy for my Kindle soon after its return.

HASH(0xa335ca08) out of 5 stars Everything Indeed... Aug. 2 2012

... yes there's a but. I picked the book up and read through it's information section quite quickly. Chapters are short and really quick on "Everything" then you go into recipes galore. I mean it's a great book but when I see "Everything" I expect a little more than what it provides. Maybe I'm being a little judgemental but I just expected more. Still an awesome book to add to the growing library of hot sauce books.

This book is well made and it explains a lot of info but very little pictures in it. It's more of a resource book, but has some good recipes in too.

HASH(0xa3788d44) out of 5 stars I never would have guesed April 29 2014
By alison Christensen - Published on Amazon.com

I bought this book as a birthday present for my boyfriend who has recently shown interest in making his own hot sauce and even growing his own peppers. Initially he was not completely elated to be recieving a book as a gift, but in the next two weeks he began taking the book with him to work so at lunch he could decide what hot sauce and what recipe to try that night. Each recipe he has tried out of this book he has pronounced as being "amazing" and exactly right.

I bought this specific book because unlike other hot sauce books it had additional information about the peppers used, how to grow your own peppers and along with the recipes for the different pepper sauces there was also recipes for meals that used those sauces. This was a completely rounded book about hot sauces and a great book to buy for anyone interested even slightly in making their own.

Buy this book, you will love it.
