Cooking with Herb is more than a collection of recipes--it's a lifestyle book reflecting the Marley Natural brand's holistic clean living philosophy. Wellness guru Cedella Marley, the daughter of famed reggae legend Bob Marley and the face of the premium cannabis brand, grew up in Jamaica with the familiar scent of The Herb and experienced its restorative and spiritual properties firsthand. Today cannabis still plays a role in her wellness regimen, whether it's in her hemp-based moisturizer or in a soothing morning tea, and in Cooking with Herb, Cedella shows readers how they too can experience the healing benefits of cannabis safely and pleasurably. She guides readers on the questions they should ask at dispensaries, offers insights on today's more potent weed, demystifies the process behind controlling the dosage of cannabis in edibles, and shares a collection of more than 75 Caribbean-inflected, canna-boosted recipes (along with strategies readers can use to integrate these dishes into their entertaining practices). And because food is only one aspect of Cedella's wellness routine, she also highlights the other ways she uses cannabis, sharing recipes for homemade beauty scrubs and hair treatments--even tips readers can use to elevate their yoga and meditation practices. Filled with practical information, beautiful photography, and Cedella's personal stories about growing up with her famous father, Cooking with Herb will teach readers to use and enjoy cannabis in a manner that's enlightened, respectful, and responsible.

101 Chilies to Try Before You Die is an all-in-one guide to the fruit of the genus Capsicum, or chilies, which contain capsaicin, a natural chemical that causes effects ranging from a slight tingle on the tongue to stinging pain. It is that heat that makes chilies a dynamite recipe ingredient and a taste challenge.
The author has selected a cross-section of 101 chilies from the five commonly cultivated chili species. The listings note their place on the Scoville scale (a measure of heat). Sidebars describe the species name, the appearance of the pod, how to grow the chili, seed suppliers, culinary usage, and alternative names. Text describes where the chili originated, its introduction to regional cuisines, the people who developed it, and more. There is information on varieties, how to dry or preserve the pods, and suggestions and recipes to create sauces, rubs, and spice mixes.
The 101 chilies are organized into five categories based on their heat profiles:
- Sweet and Mild -- While some of these 23 chilies are familiar (e.g., Cubanelle, Hungarian Hot Wax), a bit of experimentation will yield surprising taste discoveries, like the Zavory Pepper which is one of many newer chilies developed to retain the taste profile of a hot Habanero while being mild.
- Warm -- 51 chilies make this the largest category. Jalapeno, cayenne and tabasco live here, but there are many warm varieties that range from hot-sweet to lemony, with unique uses in the kitchen.
- Hot -- Hot is hot and for many people these 14 are quite hot enough. But some may still tempt the brave, like the exceptionally tasty, sweet, fruity, citrusy Goronog.
- Very Hot -- These eight are for the truly courageous. The Bubblegum 7 was named by its amateur breeder who found that it reminded him of Bubblicious Bubblegum.
- Superhot -- The current Guinness World Record holder for hottest pepper is the Carolina Reaper, clocking in at 2,890,000 SHU.
101 Chilies to Try Before You Die is a fascinating climb up the Scoville scale. It is a food guide, recipe book, culinary history, and the ultimate reference for chili enthusiasts, fans of spicy food, and those who want to challenge their taste buds.
Of all the civilizations the Spanish explorers found in the New World, the one that loved the native chile peppers the most was the Aztecs. Theirs was a culture in which the hot and tasty treats were revered almost as much as sex. Over the centuries, Aztec cookery grew and spread to become the basis for the Mexican food of today, and many Aztec dishes have lasted through the years basically unchanged. Usually, these foods were roasted, boiled, or cooked in sauces, in a legacy that Dave DeWitt, the noted Pope of Peppers, has compiled into this wonderful addition to his scintillating Pepper Pantry series.
