Blogging for Peppers at Fiery-Foods.com
If you love spicy foods, chile peppers and the chile-head culture that goes with them, then you’ve probably heard of Dave DeWitt. Dubbed “The Pope of Peppers”, Dave has been featured on numerous TV programs over the years and is responsible for the annual Fiery Foods and Barbecue Show. Now in its 21st year, next year’s show will be held at the Sandia Resort and Casino in Albuquerque, New Mexico on February 27th through March 1st, 2009. Dave is also a prolific author on all things chile related (one of my favorite’s is The Whole Chile Pepper Book). Dave put out a call a few weeks ago for assistant editors for his website http://www.fiery-foods.com, and to my delight I was one of those selected. The site is part chile bible, part cookbook, part science text and much more. The depth of information is really astounding, especially if you have a deep interest in gardening and chile pepper cultivation. Of course, there are recipes galore. My first blog post for fiery-foods.com appeared this morning, entitled “The Last Pepper In The Patch”. And yes, the photo above is in fact the last pepper from the patch this year. Check out the post and accompanying recipe for Voodoo Jerk Chicken Wings at http://www.fiery-foods.com, just look for the picture of the wings on the top right of the site. This is same recipe that helped us win the 2003 High Hope Steeplechase “Best Food” award for our “Wasting Away Again In Margaritaville” menu. You can see more menu items from this and other events on my “Tailgating Steepelchase Style” and “Recipes & Menus” pages.
Enjoy the post, the recipe and most importantly continue to check out http://www.fiery-foods.com.
