Who am I?

I am black on the outside, clad in a wrinkled cover, Yet within I bear a burning marrow. I season delicacies, the banquets of kings, and the luxuries of the table, Both the sauces and the tenderized meats of the kitchen….
—a riddle by Saint Aldhelm,
a 7th Century Bishop of Sherborne, England

KAMPOT

organic peppercorns

The MARQUIS DE KAMPOT STORY: a story of war, determination and world-class flavor.

The Renaissance of Kampot Pepper, grown only in Cambodia for centuries, begins with a French Chef, Auguste Escoffier, known for the Ritz Hotel in Paris. He used only Kampot Peppercorns for their exquisite flavor. In the 1970’s, the quiet farm-based culture of Cambodia was torn by a civil war when the Khmer Rouge stopped all normal ways of life trying to found an idealistic agrarian utopia that set out to destroy all intellectual pursuits. It was a brutal war and has taken decades for the people to recover to produc-tive lives. Marquis de Kampot™ is a 15 hectare plantation, nestled in a beautiful valley, with roughly 9,000 vines per hectare. A 5th-generation Cambodian Pepper Master leads a small team of seasonal workers from the villages near the farm. Expertise and organic certification assures excep-tional flavor. Each peppercorn is hand-picked, for ripeness and after drying, for quality and color.

KAMPOT, CAMBODIA: the perfect spot on earth for growing peppercorns

A nearby sea, flanking mountains, a quartz-rich soil; it’s the perfect spot on earth, devotees say, to yield a product they describe in that rapturous vocabulary usually reserved for fine wines: “aristocratic, virile, almost aphrodisiacal,” with subtle notes of caramel, gingerbread and mild tobacco.

CELEBRITY CHEFS love Kampot Pepper

Celebrity chefs from Paris to Los Angeles swear by Kampot pepper, a southwestern Cambodian spice with a tragic past that is now reclaiming its global pre-eminence. It is also proving to be "black gold" for some of its once-impoverished farmers, thanks in part to Kampot pepper last year being awarded a Protected Geographical Indication by the European Union. This identifies unique products—like Stilton cheese, Champagne or Darjeeling tea—as originating in a very specific region. Michelin three-starred French chef Olivier Roellinger rhapsodizes about its "olfactory richness" and broad spectrum of flavors.

CERAMIC CROCKS from PORTUGAL

TELLICHERRY cracked peppercorns fill this custom black ceramic crock made in Portugal
$21.00 | add to cart

new!

An Ancient land steeped in history with a tapestry of vastly different cultures, brought fearless Portuguese sailors to the oceans of the world. They brought home new customs, cultures and seasonings from far away lands and in 1498 the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama discovered a passage to India landing on the Malabar coast where the Tellicherry peppercorn was first discovered by Europeans.

This remarkable spice, offering a hot and spicy floral heat, was quickly adopted in Portugal as one of the finest peppercorns grown. And these and other Peppercorns discovered in Cameroon, Cambodia, South Africa and other tropical climates, still dominate as a spice of choice around the world.

We bring this very special seasoning to you in handsome custom ceramic crocks made in Portugal and filled to be enjoyed in all of your cooking by the stove or at the table. We hope you will enjoy!
