Peppers Of The Americas by Maricel E. Presilla


Peppers of the Americas

This gorgeous big book all about peppers includes unique and powerful recipes for all you lovers of heat out there.

As Presilla details, peppers bring much more than fire to the plate. Their distinct flavors–fruity, sweet, floral, herbal–add nuance and depth to cooking that no other ingredient can conjure. Here, Presilla describes nearly 200 varieties of fresh and dried peppers, each one photographed to showcase it’s distinguishing features. Information on how to grow, buy, store, process, and cook peppers now available in markets everywhere. More than 40 pepper-forward recipes for everything from ground dried pepper blends, piquant vinegars, bright sauces and lively sides to memorable main dishes round out Presilla’s tribute to this inimitable ingredient. 

I love this book. It’s a great addition to our kitchen library and will make a great gift during the upcoming holidays for those on your list who love food and cooking.

My finished copy of PEPPERS OF THE AMERICAN’S arrived from Blogging For Books in exchange for an honest review. Honestly, I think it’s a must-have for those of us foodies! Published by Ten Speed Press.
