Get acquainted with one of the most distinctive flavors the chile world has to offer: the fruity, hot habanero. This die-cut little book offers approximately thirty recipes, from the basics (Essential Habanero Hot Sauce) to the unexpected (Creole Peanut Soup-a West African-influenced treat with habaneros, peanut butter, tomatoes, and coconut milk). There’s legend and lore about the colorful history of these peppers (a West Indies folktale describes how a mother inadvertently killed her children by using too much habanero in her broth!), and thorough listings of mail-order sources. As chock-full of inspiration as a well-stocked pantry, The Pepper Pantry: Habaneros is perfect for either beginning cooks or die-hard chile aficionados.
