I have completed reading this book. I will write a more appropriate review later, but for now, know that for the chili-related sections of this book, my delving into the anthropology of chili has grown in several dimensions due to other books, periodicals, articles, and papers mentioned.

This is a collection of newspaper columns on what Texans refer to as chili...a substance New Mexicans would not recognize. I love nothing better than a bowl of red, but it has to be made the *right* way - no tomatoes, no beans, and lots of red chile - and some of the recipes contained in this book contained a ludicrously low amount of chile - a teaspoon. Go figure.

I first read this back in the early 70's and it started me on a quest for the perfect "bowl of red", and I have made some mighty fine batches of chili. Not sure I have reached perfection, but I am working at it. This book is a great history of chili with many entertaining stories. It also includes some excellent recipes. It is a good read.

Talbert writes about what chili is and is not. Includes some recipes. An excellent addition for the library of true chili lovers. He also addresses chili competitions.
