DRØM Peppergram


 

DRØM on The Food Podcast

Best-selling cookbook author, cook show host and storyteller extraordinaire, Lindsay Cameron Wilson interviewed us on The Food Podcast. She beautifully weaves together stories and facts and anecdotes. We talked about food, travel, adventure, saying 'yes' in life and the power of personal connections - and of course, pepper. Her podcast is very appropriately described as "an audible fairytale about food." Settle into your favourite podcast mode and be transported by her wonderful narration. And, there's an opportunity to win some pepper too!​ If you enjoy listening to the podcast, please share it with your friends and family.

Where does the flavour of Kampot peppercorns come from? 

As with single-origin grapes and coffee beans, the flavour of peppercorns is determined by where and how they are cultivated. Some claim that it is the high quartz content of the soil that gives Kampot peppercorns their special characteristics. Others claim that it is the growing methods and local weather conditions. One thing that's certain is that their flavours and fragrances are unmatched.

We've heard alarming reports of our customers turning into "pepper snobs" after tasting DRØM Pepper. With that condition under their skin - and in their bellies - they report suddenly talking arrogantly about the importance of terroir and single-origin when choosing pepper!

Our powerful DRØM Pepper delivery vehicle just got a make-over with a brand new top. It's now all set for making local deliveries in any kind of weather! 

RECIPE: Swedish Spice Cake

​Growing up, my all-time favourite cake was a traditional Swedish spice cake ("Mjuk Pepparkaka") with cinnamon and cardamom.

My adult version now includes a dash of red pepper and is dressed up with a floral pattern to match the floral undertones of our ​DRØM ​red peppercorns. Each bite transports me to Scandinavia, then to the pepper plantations in Kampot and then back home. Aaaah - the power of food!
