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 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.
