Description
A spice, a vegetable, a condiment, a medicine, and a pest repellant, the chile is also revealed here to be an important indicator for predicting the future of food in a changing climate. Instead of hashing over facts and computer models, this book by three pepper-loving gastronauts—agroecologist Kraig Kraft, chef Kurt Friese, and ethnobotanist Gary Nabhan—seeks out America's heirloom chile varieties and gathers stories and recipes from farmers and other people who live by the pepper, and who have had to adapt to shifting growing conditions and weather patterns.

"The noble chile—and its equally noble growers—illustrate the key principle we need for a world stressed by an ever-more-fickle climate: resilience. This book will make you understand the situation far better than most dry tomes on the subject."—Bill McKibben
