The COYOTE CAFE cookbook was a howling success that spawned a wonderful pair of posters created by Mark Miller. This full-color handbook presents an expansion of the posters' information in book form, covering 100 chiles (50 each of fresh and dried), each with a color photograph, hotness scale, and brief description. THE GREAT CHILE BOOK also includes background information, an introduction to the use of chiles in the cuisines of Mexico and the Southwest, and delicious recipes from the kitchen of the Coyote Cafe. This is a treasured guide for kitchen and market, and a visually stunning companion to COYOTE CAFE.
