The Complete Chilli Pepper Book

A Gardener’s Guide to Choosing, Growing, Preserving, and Cooking

In this exceptionally comprehensive book, two of the world’s foremost chilli specialists Dave DeWitt and Paul W.Bosland have assembled all the information that anyone with an interest in chillies could ever hope to find. The two authors are based in the USA which is apparent in their writing style.

The book includes the following sections:

History – very interesting and well laid out summary of where chillies come from.


Top 100 (or so!) Chilli Peppers – some witty overviews of a wide selection of chillies, from the much talked about Bhut Jolokia to the tiny Piquin.


How to Cultivate – this is where we feel the book really comes into its own – there is no other book on the market which really has as much detail or information on how to grow chillies. You can sense that the two authors really know their stuff and are able to impart valuable information and got into some detail about each section.


Processing and Preservation – there is alot of detail that looks at how to freeze chillies, best ideas for pickling, drying, smoking and some more creative ideas for how to preserve them as well.


Cooking with Chilli Peppers – a 100 or so pages made up of cooking suggestions and tips, from drinks to snacks to main dishes to deserts – there are an abundance of ideas on how to cook with chillies.


This has the feel of a quality book – it is well bound with a hard back cover, the paper quality is high and the photography really shows of the images to their best degree.

If you are looking for a gift for someone who loves chilli, then you cannot go far wrong with this book.

Nordic Chilli Burn

Nordic Chilli Burn Review

These tablets are a health supplement which help with weight management. These are not as strong as some of the weight loss alternatives available on the market. They contain all natural ingredients, such as green tea, chilli, ginger and dill. All of these ingredients have been used for centuries for a healthy body balance

These work by increasing the bodies metabolism – they helps to increase the rate at which your body energy is burnt which then leads to weigth loss. As your body burns more calories, you slowly, but surely, lose weight by burning stored fat.

Chili Burn ingredients benefits:

  • Green tea leaves: increases calorie expenditure and fat burning
  • Chilli-Capsicum fruit : Aid weight loss by increasing metabolism and heat production
  • Dill seed extract: Reduces Cellulite (shown in animal studies), calms the digestion and works as a diuretic (necessary for eliminating metabolites)
  • Ginger Root extract: Increases bile flow, necessary to eliminate cholesterol and toxins. Anti-inflammatory action, which counteracts intestinal inflammation.
  • Peppermint oil: Helps detox, reduces painful colon spasms and stimulates choleric activity
  • In a recent study in the medical journal Obesity, the ingredients in Chili Burn were medicaly proven to burn fat over a 8 weeks period.

    The directions say to take 2 tablets, twice daily, preferably with meals, for 2 weeks. After 2 weeks, take one tablet twice daily.
