Description: At last, here's the inspired salute to habaneras that chile lovers have been waiting for. Chile experts Dave DeWitt and Nancy Gerlach visited pepper farms, sauce and salsa makers, and habanero aficionados from the Yucatan peninsula to New Mexico, to gather the secrets of enjoying the world's hottest pepper. In The Habanero Cookbook, they share more than 100 of the very best recipes they found and much more. 

Here the authors piece together the fascinating history of the habaneras' longtime use in Caribbean, South American, and Central American cuisines, as well as their role in today's most sensational foods. You'll also find information on the many types of habaneras, a helpful glossary of terms, and mail-order sources for fresh and dried peppers and gourmet products. 

If you're not already crazy about the unique fruity flavor of habaneras, prepare to be converted by the carefully selected recipes for everything from sauces and salsa like the West Indies Pepper Sauce to entrees such as Aztec Grilled Pork Kebabs. With additional recipes for appetizers, soups, salads, and side dishes, you'll discover how delicious and versatile these brightly colored peppers are. Of course, every one of these habanero recipes is hot. But those that are truly fiery are labeled Extremely Hot so you can always elect to reduce a recipe's intensity.

With these traditional and contemporary recipes from the worlds pepper-loving regions, you'll savor the habanero like never before. Dave DeWitt founded the Fiery Foods Show and Fiery Foods Magazine, and Nancy Gerlach is the magazine's food editor. They have co-written five books about chile peppers. Both live in Albuquerque, New Mexico, and frequently travel to remote locales in search of new peppers and ways to use them.
