A cookbook devoted to the family friendly, tailgate party classic--featuring more than 60 tried-and-true recipes--from veteran cookbook author and Americana expert Robb Walsh.

Americans love chili. Whether served as a hearty family dinner, at a potluck with friends, or as the main dish at a football-watching party, chili is a crowd-pleaser. It's slathered over tamales in San Antonio, hot dogs in Detroit, and hamburgers in Los Angeles. It's ladled over spaghetti in Cincinnati, hash browns in St. Louis, and Fritos corn chips in Santa Fe.

In The Chili Cookbook , award-winning author Robb Walsh digs deep into the fascinating history of this quintessential American dish. Who knew the cooking technique traces its history to the ancient Aztecs, or that Hungarian goulash inspired the invention of chili powder?

Fans in every region of the country boast the "one true recipe," and Robb Walsh recreates them all--60 mouth-watering chilis from easy slow-cooker suppers to stunning braised meat creations. There are beef, venison, pork, lamb, turkey, chicken, and shrimp chilis to choose from--there is even an entire chapter on vegetarian chili. The Chili Cookbook is sure to satisfy all your chili cravings.

The Chili Cookbook by Robb Walsh is the little cookbook that could. Don’t be fooled by its small stature, the Chili Cookbook is worth reading and cooking from. This title offers a wide variety of history and information on the origin of regional chili. The recipes vary greatly but each one we tried was delicious and the recipes accurate and easy to follow. Special sections include a chile and chili powder guide, vegetarian chili and chili party guide. This is a must check out for the cook and cookbook reader.
