The Complete Chile Pepper Book, by world-renowned chile experts Dave DeWitt and Paul W. Bosland, shares detailed profiles of the one hundred most popular chile varieties and include information on how to grow and cultivate them successfully, along with tips on planning, garden design, growing in containers, dealing with pests and disease, and breeding and hybridizing. Techniques for processing and preserving include canning, pickling, drying, and smoking. Eighty-five mouth-watering recipes show how to use the characteristic heat of chile peppers in beverages, sauces, appetizers, salads, soups, entrees, and desserts.




 


About the Author

Dave DeWitt is a New Mexico-based author who has written 46 books on cooking, gardening, and food history. He is extremely well-known in the world of fiery foods ("The Pope of Peppers"), and is a major player in New Mexico's farm-to-table movement. He lives in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

 

Paul W. Bosland made the Guinness World Records of 2006 for discovering the world's hottest chile pepper, 'Bhut Jolokia'. A regents professor of horticulture at New Mexico State University, he has released more than 30 cultivated varieties, including a no-heat jalapeño pepper, for which he won the infamous IgNobel from Harvard University, and a habanero chile, 'NuMex Suave', which retains the unique habanero flavors without the heat. He has written or coauthored more than 100 scientific papers and is coauthor of six books. Known as the Chileman, Paul leads the chile breeding and genetic research program at NMSU where he cofounded and directs the university's Chile Pepper Institute, a research and educational center. He serves as chairman of the annual New Mexico Chile Conference, the world's largest conference dedicated to the chile pepper. His chile pepper gardening column appears in Chile Pepper magazine. He earned his bachelor's degree in genetics and his Master's degree in vegetable crops from the University of California, Davis, and his Ph.D. in plant breeding and plant genetics from the University of Wisconsin-Madison. He is a Fellow of the American Society of Horticultural Science, among other honors.
