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.

White pepper is made from the kernel within a black peppercorn, just with the outer shell removed. As the outer shell (pericarp) contains most of the aroma-creating compounds, white pepper tends to have a softer aroma, but a sharper pungency or heat. Its primary purpose is to be used in white sauces (cream- or egg-based), but can also be blended with black pepper to create different heat/pungency in any recipe.
