The Chile Pepper Encyclopedia has the answer to just about any question one could ask about chile peppers. Which chiles are the hottest? What country did the first chile plants come from? What popular brand of dandruff shampoo is made with chile peppers? Can chiles really be used to cure headaches? Even the most devoted "chile-heads" will be satisfied. The encyclopedia is researched and written by Dave Dewitt, the country's foremost expert on hot and spicy foods and longtime editor-in-chief of Chile Pepper magazine.

In addition to entries on chile species, culture, terminology, and agriculture, the encyclopedia includes more than one hundred fiery recipes like Madras Fried Chile Fritters from India and Jamaican Jerk Chicken Wings are sure to please any hot-and-spicy food lover. Black and white drawings and photographs, charts, and graphs appear throughout, and an eight page insert includes color photographs of dozens of varieties of chiles, invaluable for identification. The Chile Pepper Encyclopedia is an indispensable sourcebook for chile aficionados, gardeners, cooks, and anyone else who has a burning interest in fiery foods.

About the Author:

Dave DeWitt is an internationally known chile pepper expert and the author or coauthor of numerous books and articles about chiles. The founder of the national Fiery Foods Show and cofounder of the The Chile Institute, DeWitt was the editor-in-chief of Chile Pepper magazine for ten years. He lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

From Library Journal:

From Thailand to Mexico, chile peppers play an important role in culinary culture. Recognizing the growing interest in the capsicum, as the genus is called, DeWitt?editor for nine years of Chile Pepper magazine and co-author of numerous books, including The Hot Sauce Bible (LJ 5/15/96)?has written an informative book that will answer all kinds of questions about chile peppers. Entries, many of which are flavored with the author's piquant wit, are arranged alphabetically for easy access and range from a sentence to ten pages in length. From pod types to which beverages go best with chile peppers, nothing seems to have been left out. A scattering of various pepper statistics, an appendix devoted to pepper resources, and a variety of chile pepper recipes all spice up this delightful title. Suitable for both circulating and reference collections, this is recommended for all libraries.?John Charles, Scottsdale
