So, what is espelette pepper?

Espelette pepper, also known as piment d'Espelette, is a distinctive chili pepper variety native to the Basque region of France. This vibrant red pepper has a mild heat level with fruity and slightly smoky notes, making it perfect for adding flavor rather than spiciness to a dish. It is traditionally sun-dried before being ground into a powder or turned into a paste, which can be used in marinades, sauces, and rubs. Espelette pepper is a beloved ingredient in French cuisine, particularly in dishes such as Basque chicken and piperade. Its unique taste and aroma make it a popular choice among food enthusiasts looking to add an authentic touch to their dishes.
