The definitive guide to identifying chile peppers, this book is conveniently divided into sections on dried and fresh peppers. Beware - this is NOT a recipe book (although a few more recipes would be nice), nor does it contain more than brief instructions on preparing and using chile peppers. However, with bright colour photographs, taste descriptions, and a clear and accurate guide to hotness from bell pepper (0) to habanero (10), this book is essential kitchen equipment for those who like their cooking fiery.

How can I understand a recipe from Mexico or Yucatan without exact knowledge of which is which, the foreign chile names makes me confused. How hot is cascabel or chipotle, what does seco mean? The Great Chile Book is small enough to be used in daily kitchen work, and comprehensive enough to answer all types of questions.
The hottest chile described is Habanero, but newer even hotter chiles have been cultivated since 1992, when the book was published. But most likely you will never encounter extremly hot chiles in any printed recipe.
Some existing recipes are included in the last part of the book. Make a chile sauce from scratch, and taste the difference, it's enchantingly new and at once familiar.
