I picked this up because my youngest things chili is a food group. Or at least ought to be. The book’s fantastic! There’s a huge range from traditional Texas chuck roast in a red velvety sauce with no beans to poblano chicken, tofu, and global chilis. If you’re not familiar with the author, he wrote “Legends of Texas barbecue cookbook : recipes and recollections from the pit bosses”. I still need a copy of that one. There’s enough here to make that kiddo a new chili every week, and never get bored.-Jennifer Guerrero
I live in Michigan, where the winters are cold and chili is my go-to for a warm, nourishing meal. I've tried quite a few recipes online, as well as other cookbooks on the subject, but I was really impressed with this one. Walsh gives an interesting history of chili itself, including regional variations, the history behind the chili cookoffs, etc. I actually sat down and read the whole thing. What really makes this book worth it are the recipes, though. The ingredients are all pretty readily available, unlike others I've seen (where the heck do you buy suet or tallow?) Wick Fowler's 4-Alarm Chili is amazing. As is Ed Real's Chili Con Carne (with 1/2 pound of bacon!) Walsh also includes alternate instructions for many recipes for those (like myself) who prefer to use a slow cooker. Highly recommend this book - you won't regret it!-Jason Adam
This is a really fun book. And it is beautifully produced and bound. The printing and production is Chinese. This is a fairly thin, square hardback book that is easy to hold and read. The photos and layout are top quality. And the content is even better. Robb Walsh is a bona fide chili expert and aficionado.. He provides a good amount of history about the various origins of American chilis, chillis, and chiles. He also connects the dots with similar dishes from other parts of the world, such as goulash/gulyas that was developed on the range by cowboys in Czechoslovakia, Berber dishes in Morocco, Indian stews, etc. He also discusses the Greek (Montenegrin) origin of Cincinnati chili as a completel different dish from American southwest chili. He also discusses the various theories of southwest chili and the argument of the origins -- Tex-Mex, Mexican, Canary Islands, and other influences from immigrants to parts of Texas. There are great recipes with a lot of variety. This is a fun book just to pick up and read, then give the recipes a try and mark the differences and your preferences. If you like chili/chile/chilli and like to make it, get and enjoy this book.-Geoff Dolman
