For more than ten thousand years, humans have been fascinated by a seemingly innocuous plant with bright-colored fruits that bite back when bitten. Ancient New World cultures from Mexico to South America combined these pungent pods with every conceivable meat and vegetable, as evident from archaeological finds, Indian artifacts, botanical observations, and studies of the cooking methods of the modern descendants of the Incas, Mayans, and Aztecs. In Chile Peppers: A Global History, Dave DeWitt, a world expert on chiles, travels from New Mexico across the Americas, Europe, Africa, and Asia chronicling the history, mystery, and mythology of chiles around the world and their abundant uses in seventy mouth-tingling recipes.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“A culmination of DeWitt’s decades researching the fruit." Santa Fe New Mexican
“[A] well-written and ambitious attempt to put chiles in world perspective, including the history of chiles, the development of chile cuisines, the botany of chiles, and the celebration of chiles in festival." Journal of Folklore Research
“An impressively comprehensive and informative study." Midwest Book Review
Gary Tiedemann provides a well-paced, intimate narration. His low-key style allows listeners to nearly taste the serranos and habaneros. AudioFile
