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.

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.
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.
