My one criticism is that, when she published the second edition in 2008, Butel did not add much in the way of new chilis. Where are the winning chilis of the 1980, 1990 and 2000s? Not here.
Instead she added filler. Recipes like Berry Margaritas and French Silk Pie, which have nothing to do with chilis. The book is 204 pages out of which 35 pages only are chilis (10 of those 35 are for not really chilis as such, such as White Lobster Chili).
I'll gladly buy the 2016 version and trash this one when Butel gets to update what's happened in the world of chilis over the last 40 years.
