Cambodian Kampot Black Peppercorns Product Description

Cambodian Kampot Black Peppercorns are rare. For decades the peppercorns grown in the Kampot region of Cambodia were revered as the finest in the world. European traders brought the pepper to chefs across the continent and they loved its robust, full flavor and complex scent. In 1975 the Khmer Rouge took over the country and the pepper farms in Kampot almost completely vanished as production came to a halt over the next 5 years of terror and then years of civil war. After the 1998 elections, everything needed to be rebuilt. Slowly, Kampot Pepper production has increased over the last several years. Kampot Pepper is organically grown and the region has been awarded with a Geographical Indications Certificate (GI). This certification is similar to one given to Champagne or Roquefort cheese, authentic only when produced in their specific region. The unique flavor of the pepper is due to the rich soil of Kampot and its location between the mountains and the sea. The pepper is fresh and bright, with a deceptively spicy flavor.

These peppercorns are particularly delicious with:

  • Eggs of all types.
  • Steaks and chops.
  • Seafood.
  • Bread and unsalted butter or bread and extra virgin olive oil.
  • Season a sauce of scallions, cilantro, green chile, garlic, olive oil, sea salt.
  • Fresh cheeses such as mozarella, feta, or cream cheese.
  • Try on fresh fruit like pineapple, mango, oranges, or grapefruit.
  • Use just a dusting on chocolate (especially chocolate truffles), caramel, or citrus desserts.
  • With a Bloody Mary.
