CHILI: A PICTORIAL RECIPE
Printed in an edition of 30 copies, of which this is one of 20 trade copies. Inspired by winning a chili cook-off at his home in northeast Iowa, David Esslemont presents his prize-winning recipe in thirty-nine woodcuts in this hand-crafted book. Starting from scratch, he toasts ancho chiles, makes vegetable stock, grinds beef from farmer friends, adds homegrown garlic, tomato paste and much more . . . . The final touch is a topping of spicy sour cream garnished with julienned fresh fresno, habanero and jalapeno chiles.
Twenty copies in Japanese stab-sewn paper covers. Hand-printed from the original woodblocks on Zerkall mould-made paper 15 x 11 inches (380 x 280 mm).
