On June 28th, my latest publication, entitled “Popular Plates: Fiery Foods” will hit all the major newsstands in the U.S., including Barnes & Noble, Home Depot, Borders, Costco–all the big box stores. The publisher, Source Interlink Media is printing 200,000 copies, which is by far the largest print run of any of my publications. Essentially, this is a book in magazine format that traces the history of spicy foods from the first chile peppers in the Americas to how we cook with them today. This bookazine makes a great gift for the chilehead in the family, or a friend who wants to get started eating the hot stuff. There are 80 recipes from all over the world from basic to advanced, plus many photos and illustrations. I certainly hope everyone enjoys it!
