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.

I like spicy food. I make my own hot sauce at home from a variety of hot peppers I grow myself. Spicy doesn't mean just HOT. I have to be able to taste my food. That's why I cook in the first place. This book gives me that opportunity. I have a preference for medium heat in the spice department. Yet I can make things as Hot and Spicy as I want using this book. If you love hot stuff, get this book and enjoy.

I ordered this on my Kindle to check it out and have decided to buy the hard copy. This is the most all inclusive chili recipe I've found. Love this book! The ingredients are not that hard to find and there are so many choices. I can't say enough good things about this one!
