The Chile Pepper Bible: From Sweet & Mild to Fiery & Everything in Between FALL 2016

OCTOBER 2016

Chile peppers bring both sweet and fiery zest to dishes — discover a fascinating and seemingly endless variety within the pages of this delightful book.

 

Contrary to popular belief, a pepper does not need to make your eyes water or start a fire in your mouth to qualify as a chile. “Chile” is simply the common name for the fruit of the capsicum plant. Chiles come in a wide variety of colors, shapes and flavors.

This comprehensive book (which serves as both a reference and a cookbook) from bestselling author and expert researcher Judith Finlayson takes you through dozens of chiles and provides absorbing information on everything from the historical and geographic origins of chiles to information on the Scoville scale (which measures the hotness of a chile and was invented by Wilbur Scoville) to the health benefits of chiles and, finally, 250 delicious and inventive recipes.

Full color throughout, this book takes inspiration from chiles and embraces them with an enthusiasm that maximizes their true flavor potential. From fiery Tex-Mex inspired meals to savory and sweet Thai dishes, this incredible collection of recipes is sure to make you a lover of all things chile!

 

Judith Finlayson is a bestselling author who has written over a dozen cookbooks, which have sold over 1,000,000 copies. Judith resides in Toronto, ON. Visit her at www.judithfinlayson.com
