Description: From habeneros to horseradish, wasabi to white pepper, ginger to garam masala, The Spicy Food Lover's Bible is the comprehensive collection of recipes, cooking technique, food history, and horticulture for cooks interested in spicy cuisine. 

Through more than 31 books, Dave DeWitt has played a large part in introducing spicy food to the American palate. Together with Nancy Gerlach, he has created the ultimate guide to the hot stuff. 

This authoritative title begins by exploring the main ingredients that give the world's food its spice, with details on their history and horti- culture, as well as how to use, purchase, and grow them. This is followed by more than 250 recipes, a combination of traditional dishes (both meat and meatless) from cultures the world over, as well as new dishes that fuse influences from two or more cuisines. From seasonings, sauces, and condiments to spiced-up beverages and desserts, the recipes -- Moroccan Charmoula, Grilled Corn and Chipotle Soup, Pork Vindaloo, Cincinnati Five-Way Chili, Gravlax with Creamy Mustard Sauce, Kung Po Chicken, Tamarind Mint Shrimp Curry, and many more -- display an astonishing range of tastes and preparations, from the mildly piquant to the red-hot. In addition, there are "cool down" recipes to temper hot spices, advice on what beverages complement spicy foods, and a series of international menus for spicy feasts. 

Even the most creative cooks sometimes need to spice up their menus, and there's nothing like a fiery flavor to add a kick to ho-hum cuisine. The Spicy Food lover's Bible is the only book home cooks will ever need to turn up the heat on their everyday cooking.
