The warm fruity flavour and mild chilli heat of Piment d'Espelette makes this unique spice a versatile addition to most savoury dishes. Sprinkle on pizzas and pasta, add to scrambled eggs and omelettes and even sprinkle over salads. May be used as a substitute for Alleppo pepper in recipes.
It comes from the Basque region of Southern France. As an AOC (Appellation d'Origine Controlee) item, only product grown in Espelette can be named "Piment d'Espelette".
