PGI Premium Black Kampot Pepper - 120gkhla L'epicerie du mékong
Flavour: Kampot pepper is a fine, rare spice. Care is therefore taken to ensure its eating and sensory qualities, as well as its visual appeal. It terms of odour, it is full-bodied with subtle aromas similar to bergamot. In terms of taste, it has a strong pepper taste with aniseed notes. As such, it is important to use it less generously when seasoning than with other pepper. Origin: Our Cambodian pepper producer was one of the first producers among the 12 certified to have received the "Kampot pepper" certification in Cambodia. He actively took part in creation of the certification in 1992 and the farm is one of the few still owned by a Cambodian. Pepper is harvested fully ripe around February before being dried in the sun and hand-sorted. PGI Ecocert and Organic: Kampot pepper is a fine, organic and relatively rare spice, since the "Kampot pepper" label can only be used after verification of its origin and compliance with PGI (protected geographical indication) requirements. This means that pepper must have been organically grown in the Kampot region. Our pepper is also certified by Ecocert and meets all regulations required within the pepper production chain. Farming: Our pepper is grown in the Phnom Voar mountains which benefit from porous lateritic soils, which in turn keep roots healthy. Our producer's pepper plantation spans over half a hectare featuring 1300 pepper plants, and has met PGI requirements annually since 2000. For practicality, our pepper is packaged in a tube to resemble the Cambodian tradition of using leaves. Cooking: Our pepper is sold non-ground as peppercorns in order to retain all its aromas and flavour. You can use a standard or electric pepper mill, or even a mortar and pestle to ground your peppercorns. Black Kampot pepper is considered to be one of the finest peppers in the world and pairs exceptionally well with red meats. The verdict from gourmet pepper lovers is in: Kampot pepper refines a dish in just a few turns of the pepper mil

We put chili in the spotlight by offering gourmet products made with chilli peppers: the most widely used condiment in the world deserves to be better known.
A flavor enhancer, indeed, but not only ... Chili is a fruit filled with virtues (vitamins, zinc, magnesium, ...) in addition to being an antimicrobial; antioxidant; an ally for diets (because it gives you a feeling of satiety); and it's also an endorphins liberator (it makes you happy!)
Most importantly, chili peppers are packed with flavors and tastes!
Mamacita Linda highlights them through delicious creations: these condiments will charm you and seduce you to brighten up your preparations and bring new flavors to your dishes.
