Everything you ever wanted to know about chile peppers coupled with sumptuous photography. First, you learn about the top 100 (yes, you read that number correctly) peppers to grow in the garden. Next up is the proper cultivation, from hydroponic, to in the ground, to containers, for the various types of peppers. Finally - gloriously - come the recipes. Here is where the book really shines. Not only are there the expected recipes for using peppers in foods, but there are also recipes for canning, ...more

This book is awesome and I want a copy of it for myself. It covers pretty much everything to do with peppers - how to choose which ones to plant, how to care for them, how to harvest them, and the best recipes and preservation methods for dealing with your crop. It even tells you how to make chile pepper bonsai, how cool is that?

I found the kindle version of this book for 2 dollars and had low expectations but thought maybe it would have some fun info here and there. I was wrong. This book is not just some pretty coffee table bs. It is full of information on everything about peppers from different grow methods to drying, smoking, and a botanical overview plus tons of recipes.

The most complete reference on the subject I have found. Most books purporting to be all about these peppers are nothing but a front for recipes. This work still has those, but also contains seemingly more reference detail than all the other books on the subject I have ever read combined...

An excellent book on the subject and comprehensive. This reference includes many recipes beautifully presented along with scientific facts about the chile and its propagation, preservation and consumption.
Experience Life
This chile reference guide profiles 100 varieties; gives information about growing, storing, handling and cooking; and culminates with 85 fiery recipes.
