Piment d'Espelette arrived from the New World 500 years ago, acclimated to south of France and now returns to the Americas. Its flavor is sweet with slightly bitter notes, and medium heat that builds and lingers. It has a toasty, hay fragrance with a note of fruit.
Extra Virgin Olive Oil with Piment d’Espelette features two highly regarded and sought after French delicacies. The olive oil is produced in the hills of Vallee des Baux-de-Provence, from ripened whole olives and is cold pressed, bearing a highly fruity and strong aroma. It is then infused with Piment d’Espelette in both cord and powder form.
Piment d'Espelette is transformed into powder through a 2 week drying process in the fresh air, followed by drying in ovens for several hours. Its sophisticated flavor makes it an ideal complement to an enormous range of savory dishes, and add a defining note to chocolate and fruit desserts.
Paired with Fleur de Sel, a delicacy of Ile de Re, France, this natural, distinguished blend is best used for seasoning, especially fish and meat.
Made into a classic, natural fruit spread, it is best used when paired with a plate of cheese. Bring the tastes of French cuisine to your next dinner party by offering this as an appetizer.
