The Chile Chronicles
Tales of a New Mexican Harvest
By (author) Carmella Padilla
Chile Chronicles by Carmella Padilla
Book DescriptionTells the surprisingly elaborate story of the chilli in New Mexico. We meet the people who depend on the chilli for their livelihood, from the growers and harvesters who have pledged to keep their family heritage alive, to the scientists whose on-going goal is to produce a richer colour or easier-to-peel skin. Through vivid photographs and flowing text, we explore the life of a chilli plant, finally understand why it hurts when we bite into one, and of course, debate the age-old questions: red or green?
