They add culinary fire to thousands of dishes from a variety of cuisines and inspire near-fanatical devotion in those who have succumbed to their incendiary charms.

    Review quote
    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 20091110 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 20091208 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 20091201
