Pepper has been called “the king of spices”, and is used in every cuisine in the world for its unmistakable pungency, heat, and aroma. Pepper is so universally loved that explorers searched the world over for new sources, which is why so many other spices have “pepper” in their name. There isn’t a savory dish in the world that doesn’t include some pepper, and its many varieties allow the cook to experiment to get exactly the level of flavor and heady aroma that they want.

There are several varieties of vine pepper produced in the world — the most common in America is Malabar pepper, from the southern regions of India, but Tellicherry pepper, now Thalassery pepper, is considered to have a richer aroma and more complex flavor, and is more highly prized by European and American chefs.
