This book will be the standard reference on chile peppers for a long time to come. I give it my three-chile rating, which translates as hot-hot-hot. -- Jim McCausland Fresh Dirt blog 20091110 A narrow topic, you say? Not with the 100 top varieties covered and 85 convincing reasons for embracing more than just our beloved jalapenos and serranos. -- Renee Enna Chicago Tribune 20091208 A nicely done work that will fit well within any culinary or gardening collection and will appeal to both the novice and the expert gardener. Recommended. -- Lisa Ennis Library Journal 20091201 -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Gebundene Ausgabe .

3 von 5 Kunden fanden die folgende Rezension hilfreich Von Olaf Leich am 27. Dezember 2009
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Ein sehr umfangreiches Buch.
Es beschreibt beginnend bei der Geschichte der scharfen Früchtchen über die Sorten, die Aufzucht, Verarbeitung und Arten der Konservierung bis zuletzt die Zubereitung zu leckeren Mahlzeiten alle Aspekte von Chilis.
Welche Sorten in welchen Breitengraden am besten gedeihen wird beschrieben, sowie auch die durchschnittliche Größe der Pflanze und die Ausbeute.

Bei allen Sorten und Rezepten steht die zu erwartende Schärfe mit dabei; wichtig, wenn man Gäste mit unterschiedlicher Capsaicin-Affinität bewirten möchte. Und auch für die Vorauswahl für die eigene Zucht.
Nächstes Jahr wird mein Balkon ein Chili-Garten.

Normalerweise hätte das Buch 5 Sterne verdient.
Aber es ist nur in Englisch erhältlich und die Mengenangaben bei den Rezepten sind in den antiken amerikanischen Einheiten ;)
Es ist als öfter Mal ein Besuch bei [...] angesagt und zum Kochen braucht man eine Umrechnungstabelle bzw. einen Taschenrechner.

Fazit: Sehr empfehlenswert

the INcomplete chile pepper book 4. Februar 2010
Von robert davis - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
this is a good book for those who are not already familiar with chiles (for which "peppers" is a misnomer), have limited gardening experience and/or reference materials, and who want a few recipes wrapped up into a sort of "one stop shopping" text.

it is also a great book for those who wish primarily to concentrate on chile gardening, and who have exhausted more rudimentary texts.

the book offers a modest history of chiles. the cultivation information is pretty extensive and fascinating, and may prove to enhance my gardening experience this season. the canning and preservation sections are very informative, and if you like a sampling of specialty recipes in something other than a cookbook (which i really do not), there are some good looking ones here.

the section actually cataloging individual varieties of chiles left me flat. here dewitt and bosland have listed the "top hundred (or so) chile peppers for the garden", including a brief description of each. the descriptions are often VERY brief, and uninformative. there is no consistency in what can be expected from them, such as quantified heat levels (expressed in "scoville heat units"), flavor characteristics, sizes, expected yields, and typical days to maturity.

the greatest issue i have with this section of the book is the inclusion of only these varieties, leaving out a number of interesting and flavorful chiles, among them hungarians (indeed the only mention of paprika, was in the similarly incomplete "heat scale for chile varieties and commercial products"), and the "fish pepper" (a chesapeake bay favorite). notably, the "peter pepper" IS included, with two sentences ignoring any horticultural, or culinary qualities, and focusing solely on what some might find an unsavory description of its shape and nomenclature (apparently written to enlighten those who might not infer it).

i accept that buying online leaves one with the responsibility for making semi-informed choices and living with them, and that i could have gone to a brick and mortar bookstore, to peruse the contents of this manual. that said, i would have preferred a more exhaustive encyclopedic reference work dealing with the varieties of chiles, and might gladly have purchased as a separate text, the horticultural and preservation information contained herein (the best part of the book). the recipes could have been included in yet another, more extensive specialty cookbook, at a modest price, which i would not have been inclined to put on my shelf.

on the whole, this book is a well illustrated coffee table entertainment, with a 148 page chile horticulture and preservation narrative grafted into the middle of it, and i probably would not have purchased it as it stands, had i leafed through it.

i guess i mainly take exception to the misleading title, as this is certainly not a "complete" chile pepper book.

do not let me stop you from buying it, though- it may be exactly what you are looking for. the gardening and preservation section alone is probably worth the amazon price.

A fairly good effort 2. Juni 2010
Von mikecz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Like reviewer Davis, the greatest problems I have with this book are the lack of indications of a range of plant sizes and a range of days-to-harvest for the chiles that they deign to cover. They describe the "top hundred (or so) chile peppers for the garden" in fewer than 50 pages (with quite a few excellent photos, though). The amount and type of information given for each chile variety is too variable. For some, but not all entries, you MIGHT find out how big the plant can get, how big the fruit is, what is the heat level (in Scoville units), is it ever a perennial? Both the authors are professors at New Mexico State University. I would be amazed if they would accept a graduate student's thesis with such a degree of inconsistency.

Because they are at NMSU and author Bosland is the Director of the Chile Pepper Institute, I must give credit for their considerably better than usual descriptions of a good number of the "Numex" chiles. For anyone who doesn't know, these were all originally developed at NMSU, with some going back to the late 1800's! (yeah, they have history!) The "Numex" breeding program continues in several directions today.

The cultivation chapter, the longest in the book, is the best. Based on experiences with commercial growers and home gardeners of variable expertise, the book discusses soil preparation and amendments, seed starting and growing on, water issues, too cold, too hot (? surprising!), too little light or too much (again, a surprise). There are some pages on container growing, and just a few hints about hydroponic, aeroponic, and other soil-less grow systems. There is a very good section on diseases and pests. This chapter also includes short sections on chiles as bonsai (yes!) and breeding and hybridizing chiles.

The chapter on processing and preserving chiles has some good points.

The chapter on cooking with chiles should have been left out to make way for a more encyclopedic listing of more varieties of chiles. Get a book written by Diana Kennedy or Rick Bayless if you want recipes.

I've reviewed this book from a library copy and it should probably be recommended to your library if there are many home gardeners in your area. At Amazon's price, I'll probably get a copy for my own library.

The "Complete" in the title says it all!! 7. Dezember 2009
Von Constantreader23 - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
As an amateur gardener, avid cook and, most importantly, a spicy food aficionado, this book really has it all for me. Reading this late in November made me ready to pull out the seed catalogues and start preparing for spring. The authors provide a wealth of information on the subject of chili peppers. The first portion of the book is devoted to gardening. Without turning into a general gardening book, enough basic information is covered to assist the new gardener. I especially appreciated the in-depth description of pepper varieties, both for spring gardening choices, but also for produce shopping.
In addition to a lot of great gardening information and inspirational photography, it provides botanical information, as well. The graphics and charts really contribute to the very readable quality of this book.
But, my favorite part of the book is the recipe section. A number of easy, unusual recipes are included. The pepper infused vodka is so superior to anything you can buy at the store and was a huge hit at Thanksgiving when I used it to make my marinated cherry tomato appetizer! I brought the Double Trouble chocolate truffles to a party and they were the focus of conversation while they lasted! My family's favorites, so far, are Pasta with Green Chile Pesto and Thai Chile and Artichoke Pasta. But, I have a lot more on my list to try. In addition to recipes, a lot of good information is provided on preservation, including candied peppers, salt substitutes, pickling and canning.
A comprehensive glossary, bibliography and resource list provide even more information.
I appreciate having a book in my collection that covers all aspects of peppers. I know where to turn now for gardening questions, and, of course, really interesting recipes!

The Complete Chili Pepper Book 14. Oktober 2012
Von Donald L. Gray - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
An excellent book detailing the characteristics of home garden grow-able chillies. Nice charts about pepper strength and suggested uses. Also where the chillies grow and how they should be cultivated. I like the recipes and the indication of how hot they are. A good primer for those interested in growing chillies.

Great book and in great shape. 7. März 2013

Wife loves this book and says it provides her with good information about chile peppers.
We've just become big fans of the small chiles, but not too hot and there's the rub.
