Praise

“Robb Walsh’s new book embraces, examines, and celebrates all variety of chili pepper stew. Lucky us. Walsh is one of the great chroniclers of Texas foodways, a thoughtful historian and a warm, charming writer to boot, and while many cookbooks are written to be read as much as cooked from, rarely does one so deftly strike a balance between both.”
Eater

“While no individual chili is capable of satisfying everyone, I guarantee every chili fan will find a recipe in The Chili Cookbook that suits their needs. Robb Walsh, a food writer best known for his books on Tex-Mex and barbecue, is about as comprehensive as one can get in single subject cookbook.”
Epicurious

“As far as I’m concerned, there are only two books on the history of chili: my father’s A Bowl of Red and Robb Walsh’s The Chili Cookbook.” 
– Frank X. Tolbert 2

“Walsh is one of food writing’s best storytellers, so the book is satisfying even if you never whip out your Dutch oven and get cooking. You should, though: The fascinating tale is best enjoyed with a big bowl of chili con carne. (Walsh’s recipe from El Real in Houston is killer.)”
