Native to the New World, they only began to penetrate Asia, Africa, and Europe after Columbus discovered them along with America. Yet in 500 years chiles have become established as kitchen basics the world over -- whether fresh, dried, powdered, or pureed. Some chiles are piercingly hot, while others contribute a fruity warmth to foods. All this variety is explored in Chiles, whose 30 delicious recipes run the international gamut from piquant to fiery hot.
