I know I have mentioned Cambodian pepper on my blog in the past and now I have another reason to. Today, I received a package of black and white pepper from my friend Harumi who works at the Embassy of Japan in Cambodia. She was kind enough to send me two packages that I can't wait to use. I think they'll be perfect for roast chicken, and probably everything else too. If you haven't tried it yet, let me assure you that it really is delicious.
I know of only one other place that sells this pepper and it's a spice shop in Paris called Epices-Roellinger. It's definitely worth taking a look at their website. They have an incredible assortment of peppers, salts, spices, as well as olive oil and much, much more. The peppers (and they have many) cost about 5.50 Euros for a 40g jar. If you want more information about the shop in Phnom Penh I have scanned the brochure for you.
In case you have trouble reading the details, here is the contact info for the store. I know the owner is Japanese so if you speak the language you will be delighted to know that you can read his blog.
Phnom Penh, Cambodia
There was some interesting info on the back of this brochure so I scanned it too. I wish I could visit one of these farms, it looks so cool. It must be those farmer genes of mine.
1. Black pepper
2. Dry ripe pepper (limited: not available all the time)
3. White pepper
If I had my way, I would probably buy these by the kilogram, because they're worth every penny. I hope you try them out for yourself.
