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!

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 7th Century Bishop of Sherborne, England

Delightfully aromatic, our peppercorn samplers allow you to explore the most exotic of peppercorns. AND make wonderful gifts.

To produce black pepper, immature green berries are picked, briefly fermented, and then dried. During drying the pepper shrivels, becomes wrinkled, and turns black or dark brown. Black pepper is widely used in almost all cuisines of the world. Black pepper has a fine, fruity, pungent fragrance with warm, woody, and lemony notes. The taste is hot and biting with a clean, penetrating after-taste. Black pepper complements all savory foods, whether included in cooking or added at the table. It goes well with red meats, game, strongly flavored seafood, and egg dishes when used in moderation.

All around the World, pepper is appreciated for its warm aroma and spicy flavor. It adds depth and often balance to many dishes. It lends flavor to meats such as beef and pork and accents the delicate flavor of eggs, enhances seafood. Whole peppercorns are as much a delight to the eye as to the palate. Apicius, the Roman author of the first cookbook, recommended adding pepper to enliven the flavor of dull boiled foods, and also to enhance the flavor of some sweet dishes. Indeed, pepper still finds its way into sweet fruit preparations, especially those made with pears or strawberries. Green peppercorns can be stirred into mayonnaise for a sauce on seafood or egg salads. Ironically, white peppercorns are hotter than black, but they lack perfume and flavor and are useful alone when a peppery flavor but no black specks are desired. The best way to use pepper remains the age-old standard: a few turns of the mill just before serving.

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.

Premium Black and White Kampot Peppercorns

BLACK: Traditional peppercorn taste and none of the bitterness. Aromatic at a distance, it has a well-rounded flavor with expected heat but an unanticipated sweet finish. Perfect for the tabletop but robust enough for steaks, stews, and braise cooking.

WHITE: Hot and creamy, the white Kampot Peppercorn is sub-tle with a hint of floral and mildly aromatic. When ground, this peppercorn is perfect for seasoning light colored dishes such as white sauces, cream soups, potatoes and beverages.

A tantalizing blend of premium red, white and black Kampot Peppercorns named for the renown French Chef Aguste Escoffier of the Ritz Paris. His was the cuisine that served the discerning of Paris, the Princes of the Mediterranean, the Royals of Europe and without question, the peppercorn that Escoffier considered the finest in the world…Kampot. We created this tribute to him with our finest three varieties expertly blended to offer a most exquisite profile of flavor!

the details:

At the height of the dry season, towards the month of March, the peppercorns ripen on the vine, turning from yellow to red. Harvested by hand at full maturity, the peppercorns are then washed and sun-dried. The Kampot red pepper is the region’s flagship product. It develops powerful fruity aromas. Its unique taste, less spicy than the black pepper, has sweet notes of red fruit and honey. It enhances and flavors your dishes and desserts. Its delicate aroma develops in particular when added to strawberries and pears.

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.
