In a nutshell: White Pepper’s unique processing makes it much hotter and removes many of black pepper’s sometimes overpowering aromas. Try our Malabar White Pepper in delicate chicken dishes and Asian-style sweet and sour pork.
A well-balanced white pepper blend that features a much milder fermented taste than most run-of-the-mill white peppers. All peppers come from pepper vines that originate in southern India. Some of the world’s most respected peppers are harvested along southern India’s Malabar Coast, hence the moniker Malabar Pepper. Our Malabar White Pepper takes is inspiration from millennia of expert pepper blending on India’s spice coast. Each year, master blenders inspect the year’s harvest and combine those peppercorns that will provide the most consistent and pleasing taste for Malabar Peppers sold around the world. White Pepper’s unique processing makes it much hotter and removes many of black pepper’s sometimes overpowering aromas. This makes it a common ingredient in Chinese cooking, and a necessary part of many European dishes and French sauces. Try it in delicate chicken dishes and Asian-style sweet and sour pork.Details 50g
About Épices de Cru
Épices de Cru began in 1982 as a catering partnership between Philippe and Ethné de Vienne. Their mission was a kind of “cooking pot anthropology:” learning the secrets of family cooking around the world and applying these techniques to the needs of hungry Montrealers. The secret, they learned, was spices. Over the last two decades, Philippe and Ethné have searched for the world’s best spices, accompanied by their children, Marika and Arik. The de Viennes believe in direct sourcing spices: visiting growing regions, spending time with growers, and developing personal relationships that last decades. In 2004, they officially opened their first spice shop in Montreal’s fantastic Jean Talon market– it’s since become a mecca for foodies from all over the world. I first visited in 2008 and have been buying and using their spices on a regular basis ever since that first exciting visit. They steadfastly maintain that they do nothing original, only facilitating the exchange of culinary common sense from one place to another. But, what they do is simply quite brilliant - by providing us with the finest quality ingredients, and their superb spice mixes, we can all experiment with unusual spices and recreate delicious recipes from around the world.
