“From the plant to the plate, come travel with us …”
We set out on a pilgrimage to the Land of Peppers, in search of the amazing gastronomic diversity of our world. Our travels led us to select outstanding peppers and berries from producers in Cameroon, Nepal, the Bataks and Ethiopia. They offer an extraordinary palette of wondrous new flavours: whether it be sweet, spicy or fruity with notes of menthol or camphor, you’ll find them all in this gift box.
LIST OF GRAND CRU PEPPERS
“The tasting methods used for pepper are similar to wine tasting techniques. Clearly organised, methodical tasting techniques for pepper and research into pepper are relatively recent. Attempts to rationalize these new pepper tasting techniques, creating an aromatic profile for each botanical family and a scale to identify the strength, heat and intensity using the Scoville scale, are still at their early stages.”
Like a wine list, this novel pepper list shows the origins, the aromatic footprint, the terroir and food-pepper pairing for a selection of 20 grand cru peppers. This pepper list can be used by both professionals in the gastronomic trade and by enlightened connoisseurs. It’s a new approach to using pepper, the King of all spices!
PEPPERS AND THE PESTLE AND MORTAR – THE PERFECT MATCH
The pestle and mortar have been used since Ancient times by apothecaries and herbalists and it’s the perfect tool for crushing peppercorns. It can also be used to prepare spices mixes or for grinding berries, seeds and other wild pods … Unlike a pepper mill, a pestle and mortar is very durable and can be easily cleaned. It’s both universal and timeless, you can find it on every continent and it’s used by every civilisation.
