Cookbook of the day – Hotter Than Hell

Hotter Than Hell

Hotter than Hell: hot and spicy dishes from around the world

by Jane Butel

Publisher: HP Trade; Revised edition (August 1, 1994)

ISBN 10: 1557880964

ISBN 13: 978-1557880963

This is one of the original “spicy foods” cookbooks. Butel was a pioneer in the field and this cookbook is a foundation volume.

She tends to limit the heat in her recipes, so you won’t even see a mention of habañero, even in the chile guide. But you’ll find many useful recipes that can spice up your kitchen portfolio. Her chile con queso is particularly noteworthy. You’ll also find some recipes that don’t seem to be all that spicy because they are designed to complement spicy fare.

This was a groundbreaking work that anyone who has a taste of fire should have in their library.
