So, what is au piment d'espelette?

Au piment d'Espelette is a versatile and flavorful ingredient that hails from the Basque region of France. Made from a distinctive red pepper known as the Espelette pepper, this seasoning offers a mildly spicy taste with notes of smokiness and sweetness. It is commonly used in French and Basque cuisine to add a touch of heat to dishes like stews, sauces, and grilled meats. Its unique flavor profile makes it an excellent substitute for other chili powders or paprika, and it has gained popularity among chefs and home cooks alike for its ability to elevate dishes with its signature taste.
