Adult Nonfiction SB307.P4N35 1992

Comments  Summary  Reviews

From Publishers' Weekly:

That the taste of peppers on the tongue can be addictive is one of the revelations made in this exhaustive treatise. Illustrations. (Aug.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved

From Library Journal:

Here's everything you'd ever want to know about peppers from someone who truly loves them. Naj, a journalist with The Wall Street Journal , enthusiastically chronicles his quest for information about chiles and the people who crave, cultivate, and classify them. Peppered throughout with many amusing anecdotes about this pungent fruit and its devotees, this well-researched book is as entertaining as it is informative. Unlike Mark Miller's The Great Chile Book (Ten Speed Pr., 1991), which merely describes and illustrates the more common varieties, Naj's title details the beneficial medicinal properties of peppers, the techniques designed to measure their hotness, the process of breeding exotic varieties, the great chile sauce war, and other little-known but intriguing facts. Essential for all libraries whose patrons enjoy hot, spicy food.-- Linda Chopra, Cleveland Heights-University Heights P.L., Ohio (c) Copyright 2010.
