CHILE PEPPERS A Global History

by | Read by Gary Tiedemann

Contemporary Culture • 13.25 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2020

Food historian Dave DeWitt offers listeners the ability to travel the globe through their earbuds with this comprehensive volume on those brightly-colored plants that add spice to life--commonly known as chiles. It's all here: botanical classifications, history, varieties, and uses--from the lowest to the highest on the Scoville heat scale. Gary Tiedemann provides a well-paced, intimate narration. His low-key style allows listeners to nearly taste the serranos and habaneros. DeWitt's words combined with Tiedemann's performance gently guide listeners through the treacherous heat and many bewildering varieties. As often happens, recipes read outright make for some tedious listening and, indeed, recipes are peppered throughout the volume and occupy a great deal of the final section. Nonetheless, listeners who keep their taste buds in mind will have fun. W.A.G. © AudioFile 2021, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2021]
