Organic Piment D’Espelette - Espelette Pepper


Organic piment d’Espelette, or organic espelette pepper, is a mild to medium-hot chilli from the Basque town of Espelette in south west France. It’s a traditional ingredient in many Basque dishes like pipérade.

Organic espelette pepper is also used to add a slightly citrussy, slightly smoky kick to grilled meats, pate, stews and even chocolate desserts. It’s so intrinsic to Basque cuisine that espelette pepper has gained Protected Designation of Origin (PDO/AOP) status.

Maison Arostéguy is a Basque institution. The Arostéguy family opened a unique grocery store in Biarritz in 1875, importing goods from all over the world. In the 1930s, their reputation for high-quality products even attracted famous musicians and actors. Photographs and keepsakes are still on display in the store today.

As a family of spice grinders, they also created their own spice blends. Current owner, Pierre Arostéguy, travels the globe looking for inspiration and rare ingredients. He is also passionate about promoting his native Basque food culture. Pierre sums up Maison Arostéguy’s philosophy with the following phrase: ‘For us, no table is good without generosity, creativity & conviviality’.

Ingredients: 100% organic espelette pepper AOP.
