This book has an amazing amount of info, recipes and technique for hot peppers. Right out of the gate, you can read how to process New Mexico green chiles. This fire-roasted chiles are a staple in our family, and because I am the East Coast holdout and not living in the Southwest like the rest of the clan, I don't have access to the fire-roasted chiles you can buy by the side of the road in the fall season. This book tells you how to make them and store them (for example, they are a low-acid fruit so canning them requires using a pressure canner. Better to freeze them, says the author, and that's what most people do.)

In addition to how to prepare various chiles, you get recipes for chile oil, curries, salsas, chutneys, rubs, condiments, and even drinks. It runs the gamut of dishes from soup to dessert. How about New Mexico bread pudding with Chimayo chile? (They are a mild red chile that make the body of chile con carne and are very rich and flavorful. I sometimes use guajillo chiles as a substitute but they aren't quite the same sweetness. However, most Mexican groceries and even the supermarket have guajillo chiles almost everywhere. You have to mail order the Chimayo chile, but it's worth it.)

This is a really great book, if you are a lover of hot peppers. I found quite a few things I want to make.

The author is known as "The Pope of Peppers" in the media, which are pretty good credentials for writing a comprehensive book on the use of chile peppers. And it is comprehensive, with almost 900 pages of hot and spicy recipes. Using peppers like the poblano, jalapeño, serrano, habanero, and yellow wax peppers, the recipes include a broad range of dishes, including hot sauces and salsas, beverages, appetizers, salads, soups and stews, pork and beef, poultry, seafood, barbeque, and even desserts. There are also some meatless main dishes for vegans. Each recipe indicates how hot the prepared dish will be on the heat scale - mild, medium, or hot.

The book begins with general information about chile peppers. There are tips on preparing and preserving fresh peppers that are available in the warmer months (freezing and drying are the two main methods).

And by the way, I've always believed that the best way to relieve the burn of hot peppers was with a cold, fizzy soft drink. Not so, says the author. To relieve the burn, use dairy products, the thicker the better. A protein called casein in dairy products strips capsaicin molecules from the receptors in the mouth and tongue, so use heavy cream, sour cream, yogurt, or ice cream to kill the burn.

If you like your food hot and spicy, Dave DeWitt's big book will be a great addition to your cooking library.

I picked this up with some skepticism, in that collections such as this one never seem to cover any one area very well. For what it's worth, in the cuisine areas with which I'm familiar, _1001 Best Hot and Spicy Recipes_ does a great job - and the recipes for other cuisines seem very well set out. The breadth of this collection is pretty breathtaking - there'll be lots here for anyone who enjoys a bit of piquancy in her food. From the wonderful introduction through all of the encyclopedic, well laid-out sections (kitchen essentials, classic sauces/salsas, drinks and snacks, breakfasts/breads, appetizers, salads, soups/stews/gumbos, meaty mains, barbecues, poultry, seafood, meatless mains, veggies/sides, desserts) have detailed but simple recipes involving warm spiciness. Again, Mr. DeWitt does an accurate job on the recipes with which I'm familiar, and there's a good amount of explanation of areas of controversy as well. Gotta love it - this book far outstripped my expectations. My wife and I are enjoying it and we'll likely be giving it to friends/family.

This is a really comprehensive cookbook. It has every type of recipe imaginable in every category. I am a chili head so having this many hot and spicy recipes in one book is wonderful. I would recommend it to anyone who eats hot sauce and hot/spicy foods regularly. There are some recipes that call for items I've never heard of that have to be purchased at a specialty market, but most of them have ingredients from the grocery store. The price was really reasonable. This is a big fat book. If anyone knows hot and spicy, it's Dave Dewitt.

I read some of the book and like the different collections of hot and spicy recipes from all over the world, very interested.

I think book has some great information on the different spicy foods worldwide and this makes it stand out, it does not just cover local cuisine but stuff from South America, the Caribbean, among other places. So we can basically try to make spicy foods from other places, kind of like a little spicy food tour not just locally but from elsewhere. Great book!
