The flavor of Espelette Pepper is a blend of tomato, pepper, and hay; it is more aromatic than hot. It should not be cooked; simply sprinkle it atop grilled fishes, salads, pasta, fried eggs; or else, blend it with mayonnaise — the aroma and flavor of this French delicacy will enhance just about anything. One of the best combinations is to sprinkle Espelette Pepper powder copiously on top of some "duck rillettes."

The Espelette Red Pepper is grown exclusively in the canton of Espelette within the Aquitaine French Basque Region bordering Spain. During the summer, most houses and shops in and around Espelette are adorned with fresh Espelette Pepper hung on strings. Indeed, this delicious red pepper symbolizes French Basque cuisine and culture. The Espelette Pepper is designated as Appellation d'Origine Contrôlée.
