Description: Peppers is a striking and taste-tempting celebration of the worlds most varied and versatile vegetable. Forty-nine recipes with full-color photographs salute peppers -- from sweet to fiery -- in all their glory.

The peppers included here range from the familiar sweet, crisp, green, red, or yellow bell pepper to exotic, smoky chipotle chilies, from spicy poblanos, serranos and jalapenos to diabolically hot habaneros and cayenne peppers. Each recipe -- easy to prepare with fresh, natural ingredients -- is accompanied by a mouth-watering, full-color photograph that illustrates the exotic visual appeal of the pepper.

Peppers can be enjoyed raw, baked, sauteed, roasted, pickled and fried, in soups, stews, salads, sauces and relishes. Arranged by level of heat, the book begins with such mild delights as Roasted Yellow Bell Pepper Soup and Bell Pepper Confetti Pizza, then proceeds to slightly spicier fare like Fried Poblano Pepper Rings with Avocado Dip and Seafood Stew with New Mexico Peppers. More adventurous cooks will want to try Stir-Fried Beef with Chipotle Chilies. Tomato and Wax Pepper Bisque and Arbol Chili con Came are for those who like it hotter still; and Warm Beef Salad with Thai Peppers is for those who favor fire. Sizzling suggestions for spiked beverages and accompaniments, such as Jalapeno Margaritas and Corn and Cherry Pepper Relish, truly prove that the pepper adds sparkle and flavor to any dish.

A comprehensive introduction discusses the variety of peppers most widely available and their uses, and an appendix lists mail-order sources.

A stunning and imaginative cookbook for those who like it hot, for those who don't, and for those who like it somewhere in between.
