Book Description

23 May 2012
This is the story of the spice that changed the world, with 100 stuning recipes. This is a book dedicated exclusively to the world's most valued and fascinating spice. Why is it that pepper and certain foods go together so perfectly? (Think steak au poivre, black pepper crisps, cream cheese and black pepper, or even strawberries and black pepper.) Christine McFadden's evocative collection of recipes from around the world are geared to modern lifestyles and informal eating, inspiring the imagination with unusual ways of using pepper - in cakes and desserts for example - reminding us of pepper's traditional use in pickles and preserves, in sauces and soups, curries and stews. A vivid first-hand description of the pepper gardens and spice markets of Kerala and a fascinating account of pepper's role in shaping history, provide a colourful backdrop to the serious business of cooking with and tasting pepper. The photography is by Jason Lowe. This work is following in the bestselling footsteps of "Cod and Salt".

5.0 out of 5 stars Spicy stuff 23 Aug 2008
I took a bit of a chance on this one. It was among my Recommendations, and not a title I'd have normally picked up on (or a peck of, either), but perusal in a live bookshop convinced me to buy it. And I have not regretted it. The book is packed full of pepper facts, and a feast of recipes, some of which are surprising, others happily familiar. It is also beautifully produced, which may figure less for some, but is always a winner in my, er, book.

5.0 out of 5 stars There is more than black and white pepper 15 Nov 2012
By Atir
I can highly recommend this book. The book is really an eye-opener. Apart from giving the histories of the various types of peppers it also contains pepper blends/uses and quite a number of recipes. Some of the peppers are not to be found in the usual grocers' or supermarkets; but have look in the groceries section of amazon.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very pleased 21 Jan 2011
Format:Hardcover|Verified Purchase
I had this book in my wishing list for 3 years and as no one bought it so I did.

I have always be interested in peppers and I use it every day and do my own mix. I have got 10 different sort of peppers but in the book there are plenty more though there will be difficult to find.

The book is divided in several parts, history of pepper, pepper trade, pepper family, uses (culinary, medicinal...), tasting notes and recipes (salads, soups, fish, meat, pasta and rice, vegetables, cakes and biscuits, spice blends, seasoning and sauces).

A great book for pepper's lovers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pepper, Christine McFadden 29 Feb 2008
I met this author on the set of Market Kitchen, listened to her being interviewed about the research for the book, and the many numerous pepper varieties out there and then was lucky enough to speak with her and look at the book. I just had to order it. For me, this book is as much about education and reference as it is about the recipes.
