Plant-Based Spice Origin, Scents, Flavors & Benefits
Our Piment d’Espelette comes from the town of Espelette in the Basque region of France. And make no mistake—this chili, like fine wine, is very special.
The chilies have earned the distinctive AOC (Appellation d’Origine Controlee), which enforces strict rules on production and place of origin. Its flavor is delicate with a touch of heat that’s much stronger than paprika, but not quite as hot as cayenne. It’s one of the most useful red chilies you can have in your pantry.
Comes in our signature airtight tin, which measures 3-1/2 inches in diameter and 2-3/4 inches in height.

While not a scorcher, Piment d’Espelette has a nice subtle heat, slightly smoky and slightly citrusy.
I find it quite refreshing sprinkled on sliced green apples or juicy summer peaches it works well in garden and potato salads.
Some studies show that eating foods seasoned with chili pepper or black pepper can boost metabolism by up to 23%. Black pepper has a compound called piperine, which means it binds to fats, and so when we cook with oils, the piperine binds to the oil and is more easily absorbed by our guts or digestive organs.
When you eat a spicy dish, your body generates more heat, which, in turn, helps burn calories.
