A HAND UP
NOT A HAND OUT
“There’s pepper, then there’s Kampot Pepper".” Brendan Brady, Time Magazine.
Once the darling of Michel star restaurants, Cambodia’s pepper was thought extinct after it underwent a campaign of destruction by the Khmer Rouge who considered it a decadence. A few plants were discovered by an Aid worker who worked with locals to revive a crop. We partner with a local social entrepreneur group that supports a cooperative model and works with farmers to maintain a level of gourmet, small batch integrity.
This package contains a 40g box of black pepper, 40g box of red pepper, 40g box of white pepper and a special addition 40g box of long red pepper.
