Grown on a small, woman-owned farm from the seeds of the French Espelette chile, we are in love with this flavorful chile flake. Espelette chilies are a Basque region staple and very difficult to find outside of France. The Mediterranean climate of Northern California makes it the perfect place to cultivate the beloved flavor profile of the original.
In the Basque region Piment d’Espelette chile flakes are used in place of pepper, and with Piment d’Ville we see why! With a heat very similar to black pepper and a lovely fruity, acidic sweetness, toss this in some salad dressing or quick pickles to help the flavors sing!
